No. I get up with my son. I could drape a screaming baby over my husband's face and it wouldn't wake him up. There's no arguing because once my husband is asleep, he's dead to the world. Luckily for me, my son started sleeping through the night at 6 weeks old. During the day if I need something, my husband will help but I have to ask him to. That always turns into an argument. He goes to work and I always give him a nice long break of being home before asking him to hold the baby or change his diaper. But that's the thing, he always has to be asked. When I've held the baby all freaking day and I finally tell him for the 90th time "can you please spend time with your son without me asking you to do it?!" THAT turns into an argument. There was one day where I hadn't gone to the bathroom in over 8 hours and it still didn't dawn on my husband to offer to let me have a break. It drives me nuts.

I never had that problem. I breastfed and the baby slept with me. Considering my husband needed/needs his sleep because he works all day I wouldn't have even considered having him do it. I could nap when I needed it. Back then he'd probably have been fired if he napped.
