I know that it takes fathers a little longer than mothers(typically) to adapt to a crying baby... but when your child is almost 6mo, how do you help him cope, adapt, and learn to handle himself when nothing he does comforts her?
My daughter is going on 6mo in Jan. and my husband is still pretty heavy-handed with her and gets aggravated/annoyed/angry with our daughter when she cries, seems to rather her sleep if he has to watch her alone because he'd rather not be... I don't think this is the right word, it seems a little harsh but, bothered by her if she's awake... she's hitting that "needy" stage.
This issue has put a strain, not only on his and our daughter's bond, but mine and his relationship as well. I do my best to comfort him and somewhat walk him through things that I do to soothe her... but he seems to take it personally and it only makes things worse. I hate to say this, but sometimes i decline going out with family or friends because I am THAT uncomfortable with leaving her with him unless its AFTER I put her to bed for the night..
