  • You just need to tell him, look hun i know you do your share during the week and i appreciate it but i would really like it if maybe we could switch weekends to get up with the baby because i am dying to get some ZZZZZZZ :-D or maybe you could figure out something else that would work for the both of you

  • You just have to force him to get up sometimes. I'm dealing with the exact same thing with my boyfriend. He works long hours, second shift. He goes to work at 2PM and doesn't come home until about 11:30PM. It SUCKS. But sometimes you just gotta ask for help. Some guys think you don't need any unless you physically ask for it.

  • my daughter is a 15 months old and she still wakes up once a night cuz she has trouble breathing at night and it sucks to have to get up with her and not get much sleep and i have asked my hubby for help and still wont do it he says he sleeps to deep and dont hear her but thats a bunch of BS lol but yeah u just gotta put it out there and say i need help on the weekends and it would be nice if u could help at least one night one the weekend.

  • We switch off. He sleeps in one day, I sleep in the other. That way we both get to sleep in.
