We take it in turns to do night feeds and we both get a night a week on our own in the back bedroom so we can catch up on sleep. And when he's not at work we split it 50/50. We're also splitting my mat leave so he'll get the last 4 months off with our LO. We spoke about it being equitable before we tried for a kid. I don't think I could have done it without. Don't feel guilty, get your sleep! Looking after a new born is well harder than being in work!
My partner is an airline pilot and he works mad shifts. When he’s working I do it all, when he isn’t working we split it 50/50. The other night he got home at 1am and took over straight away. He sees it as my time with the baby is also working and so when he’s present we should be sharing the workload. I’m immensely grateful (that day id been up with the baby since 4am the day before and I’d had my arms full for over 24 hours) and appreciate that different partnerships do things differently. This works for us! X
My daughter is 4 weeks old and I pretty much do it all myself apart from the odd help with a feed here and there. My husband works shifts and can start at 2am so his shifts can be a killer and will need sleep when he gets in
You are very lucky Ms.Hannah. My husband works that 8 hour shift 6 days a week. So when he gets home it’s honestly not really
I have the exact same setup as @Katharine
