At least thts what I keep telling myself... I just had my son 2 wks ago and its been tough I'm fighting ppd. My SO is always to tired to help which is cool I understand that but why get mad that I breastfeed and it takes his chance to bond with our son? Aren't there other ways to bond? Of course there is but he won't take them he is to stuck on his own Shit and everytime I ask him for help he looks annoyed he very well might not be but I see a flicker of annoyment in his eyes that it makes me not wanna ask for help. Like earlier I fed the baby and told him all he had to do was burp and change him then he will relax for a but before falling asleep... I go to take my shower and all I hear is him cussing and telling the baby to stop crying so naturally I rush through my shower step out grab the baby burp him and change him and BAM stops crying... Well my SO is mad at me and started saying tht I spoil the baby and he doesn't want to pick him up and make him spoiled cause I'm already well on my way of doing so... Well I guess long story short we aren't speaking to each other cause he says I dnt want him to bond with the baby and I never give him a chance but I told him everytime I leave him alone he is either too occupied with his phone or getting irritated cause the baby is fussy... Sorry so long just needed the vent
First off thank you to all the ladies and your support, my SO and decided that I will pump so he can feed our son every other feeding but I told him so that he can get some sleep throughout the week the midnight feedings will be breast he is thankful and is still saying I spoil him but he says he understands why cause he caught himself doing the same thing I do when Sebastian cries and I told him tht is not spoiling its our parental instinct kicking into gear...
