During the week, he does not, because he goes to work in the morning. On the weekends, he will take LO and burp him and rock him back to sleep after I feed him, usually just once in the night.
Not at all in the middle of the night. BUT... our 2 older children wake up as early as 5:30am sometimes and he's responsible for getting up with them, fixing them breakfast, and getting them ready for school. Then he drops them off at school on his way to work.... all while I sleep in as long as the baby will let me.
I think I've got it pretty good since DD is only waking up once a night now
For the most part, no. I always figured one of us might as well get some sleep! He would help if we had a rough night though, and sometimes he'd keep her content so I could sleep longer before she needed to eat.
Now she sleeps really well AND he has to get up @ 4 a.m.so I definitely don't expect him to help. I can change her diaper, feed her, and have her back down in 15 minutes so we're sticking with that for now!
CaraM01:He got up to help during the first week...then he went back to work and it didn't make sense for him to sit and watch me nurse On the weekends if she gets up early he will bring DD to me then bring her downstairs while I sleep for another hour or so.
This is what we did too. It's a lot faster for me to just do it all-we have a routine and DH kind of throws her off when he tries to help.
ceciliasdiamond:When we did the middle of the night stuff, he would go get her, change her and bring her in to me. I got to sleep for 30 seconds more and then get myself all adjusted and ready for her. It did help out, alot!
This. My husband does the same thing, well, not as much, now that we're cosleeping, but he does diaper duty and makes sure she's ready for me, so I can get more sleep.
