  • we have all girls, so the only time he wouldn't help unless he had to was change the diapers and give them a bath. but other than that we are 50/50. bow they are older so we don't have to worry about the diapers. lol

  • I'm a SAHM so he his percentage is screwed already. However, when he is home, he is a pretty big help with them.

  • My husband helps when he's awake (he works third shift). I do a lot of it on my own, though, since I stay at home and he sleeps during the day.

  • I'm a SAHM, so I'm here most of the time and he's at work - but when he's home it's more like 75/25 with him doing the 75% of the childcare.

  • I'm sorry... I'm so flustered right now that I was just typing...

    """"How much is YOUR child's father in the picture or help out??

    My answer:: I'm gonna say 20% and I'm 80%... my husband is the main provider and works long hours.. but thats NO excuse. I didnt pregnant myself. For an example, I work weds-saturday and my husband texted me today and said "oh hey! Work asked if I'll work tomorrow and I said yes."......... well we have NO ONE to watch our daughter and my husband was like just call in sick! Ummmmmmmm I cant just call in sick especially since I called in sick YESTERDAY for OUR sick daughter. Ugh! Anyone's husband or baby daddy like mine... or am I lucky one to get this special man! LOL

  • When my husband is home, he almost solely takes care of our daughter and tries to make up for the time he is gone. I am a SAHM and so I get plenty of time with her. I'd say it's definitely 50/50.
