I don't know what to do... I'm getting so close to leaving my hubby because of the way he feels about our daughter. He has a lot of resentment towards her because she seems to require so much attention. She will lay on the floor and cry until it seems like she's hyperventilating... there will be tears coming from everywhere and snot like crazy. then he second she is picked up she's ok. He wants me to just leave her alone and let her cry like that but I can't.He calls her a cry baby and tells her it's her fault that I'm mad at him... What do I do??????????????I don't want to leave him but I don't want him treating her like this any more eitherAnswer Question

That feeling that you get in your gut that you HAVE to pick up your crying baby is right! Listen to your mothering instinct.
"fussing and crying... are signs of distress...innumerable other studies suggest that such distress often presages emotional insecurity, hyperactivity and conduct disorders in later childhood."
Crying increases the levels of cortisol in baby's brain. "...constant stimulation by cortisol in infancy causes physical changes in the brain. "It makes you more prone to the effects of stress, more prone to illness, including mental illness"
