Sahms with infants....or even just sahms...

 I'm just curious....does/did your dh get up with the baby at night even when he had to be at work? Ds is 5 months old and dh has gotten up once with him since he was born. The only reason he did that time was because I had been up for three days straight almost and starting weeping uncontrollably. Funny part is he was "tired" the next day and got all sorts of sympathy at work for getting up with the baby. Is this a common thing? Or did your dh pitch in?

 

Please excuse any typos....I'm extremely sleep deprived.

No. He has to work the next day, I can nap through the day.
And I breastfeed so there is no point in both of us being up.

During the time that I wasn't working, we would take turns. If he didn't work the next morning, he would get up with the baby and then sleep after I got up. If he did work, I got up.

He helped a little bit when she was brand new and had colic. Now she is 5 months and sleeps though the night! :)

My son is 14 months old, and my DH has never gotten up with him. I bedshared with DS until he was around 7 or 8 months old though (I think).

I was a single mom when dd was an infant. I was also a sahm because I'm disabled. I did it all alone and it was tough.

He'll stay up with her and let me sleep for a few hours.

 I understand with breastfeeding. I wish I could nap through the day though. :(

Nope, he sleeps. If I need help I just wake him up. Doesn't happen often but he doesn't care and he doesn't try the "oh I'm tired" card. He has a lot of respect for me actually
