My boyfriend of almost 3 years is my baby's father but I still feel like a single mom. I take care of him all by myself. He pays the bills and gets him everything he needs (but lets be honest, we got 90% of the stuff we need from our baby shower) but he complains about that constantly. He doesn't even work much, doesn't have to get up early, stay out late (although he does stay our with his friends most nights until 4am) and I'm at home with the baby 24/7. He's almost 3 months old. Most of the time I can handle taking care of him all by myself, I don't really trust my boyfriend with him anyways, he has anger issues and snaps really easily. But when he's been waking me up every hour for two nights in a row, it would be nice if he could take a turn rocking him back to sleep. This morning I lost it. I hadn't slept all night. He came to bed at maybe 5am but that was HIS CHOICE. I handed him the baby and said "I can't take it anymore, please take him" "unbelievable, you've been sleeping all night" he replied. "Actually, he's been keeping me up all night" I said. The baby started to cry and he just rolled over and ignored him. "You can't rock him back to sleep, just once!?" I said. "You're f***ing crazy, what's wrong with you" he said and took the baby over to rock him for 5 minutes, then handed him back to me, still awake. WTF I'm not even asking for much help, it's not like I'm like "I did it last, it's your turn" it's "I've done it for the past 3 months, It's your turn" I just need a LITTLE help every once in a while!!!!
