Most men just are uncomfortable around babies. For whatever reason they are boring, or fragile, or just overwhelming(as if you didn't know that right?lol). I am sure that he will come around in time, my husband is slowly. My husband was deployed for the first six months of dd's life, so when he came back I think he just didn't know what to do, since I had been doing everything. Just sit down and have a talk with him and tell him how overwhelmed you feel, and how you could really use the help. Set a date and time where you can get out of the house, or use specific times where you need help, i.e. bath time, changings. Most men are just oblivious, sometimes simply telling them makes them aware of what is going on and they are more inclined to help.
