Quoting Kristin B. +down.40+:" I stay up all night, and during the day, while DH is at work to take care of our 5 week old LO, and I ... [snip!] ... 4 to 10ish, then I take over again. I just feel bad because he works all day then comes home to me handing him the baby. :/"
I don't get to do this because my BD up and move 13 hrs away when I was pregnant but my boyfriend has an 8 year old and he said his baby's mom did this ALL the time, and it's NOT ok. He's told me so many times that the time that he's spending with MY son he didn't get to spend with HIS daughter because he was half dead through most of it because he NEVER got a break. I mean what would you do if you were a single mom and you didn't have someone to hand your baby off to? I lived with my parents for the past 6 months and I would be up all night with a newborn, have to be at work at 8 and so my mom would have him during that time and I would come home at 4 and go right back to taking care of my son...it's called being a mom...it's what you have to do. Yes your husband should help take care of the baby but damn, let him breathe for a minute before you shove your screaming child in his arms
