Does anyone else have a teenager for a so?

Claire hasn't been sleeping well at night lately, which means little sleep for me. It's df day off, yesterday and today. I've been getting maybe 2 hrs a sleep at night. I finally get Claire asleep at 2am. Df coughs a million times and wakes up Claire 10min after she fell asleep. I told him, she's his responsibility now. I have my last final today (1pm) and he needs to take care of her.

He is acting like such a teenager. He's complaining:

"God damnit!!! I'm soooo tired!!!" "Ugh!!!" "I can't believe this shit!!!" I told him to stop whining and to take responsibility. Then he goes in the living room and put her in her bouncer and he starts yelling "just go to sleep!!! God!!!!" I told him not to yell at our 4mo old baby. He says I'm trying to control him and criticize him. I tried explaining that she was already upset and now she has a trusted parent using an angry voice at her. He says "fine ill try not to yell at her, just leave me alone!!" " I don't want to talk to you!!! Ugh!!!" I told him if he didn't want kids, we shouldn't have planned them and had sex. He thinks he can get away without acting like an adult and being a parent.

I don't even know how to fix this. He is also a "gamer" type, which I didn't mind until he would rather do that than take care of his kids.

I don't think I can change him...

That would be an ending point for me.  There is no reason whatsoever to yell at a 4 month old baby.  I would be afraid he would hurt her.  It only takes a minute for someone to snap and not be in their right frame of mind.

Pretty sure I wouldn't leave my 4mo old alone with him if he's yelling at her!
