  • That's where we fight! :) he works 7 days a week otherwise that would be my solution! he thinks that my life is easy because I sit at home with her!

  • If they spend an hour or two with the baby they realize that it's not all that easy.

  • Let him watch the baby (you can watch) and do not help him. Let him see how it is really is to care for the baby.

  • Is he happy working 7 days a week? Is he happy that you are a SAHM? Could you get a full-time or part-time job to relieve him of some of his work? That way, he'd get some time with the baby, and he's see that caring for a baby is a difficult, but rewarding, job.
