  • Did he bring him back 45 minutes late because he was at the doctors? I don't see anything wrong with him taking him to the doctor. But the butter thing is hilarious!

  • No.. that is so weird.. for the cold you can use infant vicks.. and teething you can get teething tablets they work fast and safer than the oral gel.. My son is teething right now too and thats what we use.. does your son like baths.. we give our son a bath right before bed every night and that seems to relax him.

  • lol least it's totally harmless. And I find it odd that he brought him back with butter on his chest if he came from the doctor's office. I see no problem with him taking him to the doc for his cold and being 45 min late because of it

  • No he wasnt late BECAUSE of it, AFTER the appt. he went home to put butter on him.
    I mean what the heck could butter possibly do?!?!? To help with teething OR a cold?!?

  • Did you ask him why he put butter on the baby? It may be an old wive's tail. Anyway, I don't see why he can't take him to the doc if he sees the need. It is his child too. Cut him some slack or he may stop trying to help you raise this kid and there will come a day you will need him, even if he does do strange things, lol.

  • that's funny...i wouldnt get too upset about it. At least he took him to the doctor and was caring for him. You can't really fault him for that. I would rather him be a good daddy and be a little late than be lazy and not care and bring him back early cause he didn't want to be with him. Maybe the butter came from something in the past. When my DH is sick he soaks in rubbing alcohol and a hot bath. I thought it was pretty hilarious and weird at first but thats what him mom did when they were young ,so whatever....anyway, just talk to him about it and tell him if hes going to be late he needs to commnicate with you.

  • It's just really funny to me. If he meant well I would not stress. Let him know you were worried that he was late and would appreciate a phone call next time at least though.

  • Oh you ladies dont understand, he has NEVER helped, and he only took him because his mother insisted! They are Armenian, and he said it was to help his cough?

    And he took our son, without asking, to push buttons not to help!
