  • Oh yeah.... I hear ya now!! My ex was like that.... and I was angry and resentful at him over stuff like that, most of the time, while we were still together.

  • at 4 am, misunderstanding can easily occur. If he is usually helpful (like holding the baby for an hour and a half in the middle of the night) I would cut him a little slack. Just talk to him about it and tell him he really hurt your feelings and that all you needed was a minute to go to the bathroom. If he is sorry about hurting your feelings, then I would let it go....

  • My infant had diarrhea when he was tiny, and the pediatrician said feed only water for a few days so his tummy would settle down. But the baby was always hungry, poor baby. And I was feeding him every one or two hours around the clock and not getting any sleep. I was exhausted. I usually didn't ask my husband for help, but on the second night I did ask him to take one of the night time feedings so that I could sleep, he grimaced. I fed the baby myself, (the baby was fine by the second day.) But I was hurt and resentful. Being so tired didn't help the way I felt. You have every right to be mad and hurt. It might be worth it to explain why you needed help and then let it drop.
