Let dads be a dad

I’ve struggle letting my husband be a dad. If he isn’t doing it the way I do it, it’s wrong an I push him out the way. I need to stop!! It’s not fair for him or Asher. I get so anxious an totally dismiss my hubs. Anyone else have this issue? If so how are you trying to make things better?

I get it, I don’t even want to hand my son over to my husband. But I do it and I bite my tongue. My husband is the one who critiques everything I do as if I’m not doing anything right but finally admitted it’s because he doesn’t even know what he’s doing. So I bite my tongue and let him do things his way and when my son gets too fussy for him he gives him back to me and he calms right down.

I start and catch myself and just apologize and tell him to do what he thinks is best. Eventually you stop lolsz

Awesome that you notice this tendency now. Within my first year of being a mom, I realized that I had to let my husband do things his way. The exceptions became bedtime & screen time decisions. We had to get on a similar page regarding those, or I ended up “picking up the pieces”.

Omg am that type of mom. I always want to be around my daughter only rather than have her dad around.

I know this feeling all too well. But I’ve just decided to let go and let him do his thing, because I know he’s not going to do anything that will bring harm to the baby.
