This.

Btw, we're stationed in Hawaii too. DH works out of MCBH Kaneohe but we live in Army housing. Where are you?


Quoting splatz:

Same thing I thought. Men don't always know what to do in the baby stage either. Men don't instantly bond with babies like women do. And they don't have that natural instinct on how to take care of them. Babies can be pretty intimidating. Tell him how you feel.



Quoting goddess99:

I agree with this. He sounds stressed and depressed.

Quoting MJP76:

Does he suffer from PTSD? Maybe he needs to seek help.
