Night time duties
Anyone else have a spouse who doesn't share duties at night? I put my son to bed 100% of time which includes a bed time routine and then 10-30 min of nursing/hugging him to sleep (he's not sleep trained). When he wakes up during the night it's always me who has to get up and comfort him back to sleep. Sometime he sleeps really well but last night my son didn't settle until 1130 then was up again from 1-3, 4-6 and then up for the day at 730. My husband slept thru it all but he wanted to watch something on TV at 7am so he got up. The baby started crying at 730 and I thought finally he could take him since he's already up and I could get some sleep but instead he just left the baby to cry and waited for me to wake up and take care of him while he watches the show in the other room. I love taking care of my son but I'm getting burned out from poor sleep and feeling like all the night time responsibility is on me. I've asked him for more help and he just says this is what mommies have to do.
