my wonderful DH

we got into a fight overnight. i am a control freak and keep following up on him as to ensure he is doing everythign with DD my way bc that's how i do it all day long while he's at work. i am constantly correcting him and telling him to 'try' it this way or that.  he was supposed to get up and do the feeding i just finished and refused b/c of how mad he was at me. i am gonna be exhausted now and it's my own fault. please help me to step back and let him do hsi job as a daddy without me being in his face. he is such a great guy adn great daddy and i am being awful to him. thanks for your advice, prayers, etc

Re: my wonderful DH

  • It helped me to realize that DS would benefit from 2 slightly different parenting styles. It was hard though. I would freak out when DH would hold our 5lbs baby up in the air over his head, but when DS did great with tummy time and sat early, I realized all that core work with daddy was good.

    I tried not to intervene unless it was truly a safety issues... it was hard though. Have a talk with your DH, let him know you're going to try to take a step back and you value his role as a dad. GL!!
