  • psshhttt. he never gets up and the only time he does is after we have to argue about it. it is frustrating because i am tired as well and this is your child too so why cant you do your parent responsibilities??? ugh i cant even talk about this without getting pissed haha

  • My ex would never get up with our son. But my current DH does get up with our child. Now that he is almost 2 it's not as frequent as it was, but from day one he shared those responsibilities with me.

  • Actually we are pretty 50/50 on it... Always have been. Granted DS typically wants DH adn DD typically wants me....

  • My DH always got up. I would nurse, then he would change the diaper. He loved doing things for our kids when they were little...still does.

  • When he was an infant and not sleeping through the night yes we would take turns. He's 3 now and only rarely wakes up. I probably get up more often when it does happen but that's not to say that he doesn't at all.
