I don't know if I'm expecting too much of him or if he's just being a rick-pay. I just gave birth to a beautiful little girl 3 weeks ago. my back and groin is still killing me, and I haven't got any sleep and hardly any help from anyone, even though I've asked. I feel drained, and my husband gets upset when the house isn't spotless, even though I'm taking care of his 3 and 7 year old (my stepchildren) on top of the new baby. am I asking too much of him to lay off me until I heal a little better? Did anyone get any help from their husbands?

I agree with the first poster! When I had my daughter my husband did everything he could to help, he was amazing!!! I had a lot of back problems too and my husband did his best to lift the baby and put her where I needed her, so if I were you I would do some talking and chew him out for being so lazy!

He needs to do his part and he's not! My hubby would do lots of the night shifts. The house is secondary now. You'll get into your groove in awhile, but is you are this sore, and still have other kids, and no help--you need it and he NEEDS to back off and pick up some slack!

Next question overall
(Babies (0-12 months))
When can you let a newborn sleep in their own room?
