So our son is four months old and well my bf has been acting weird for awhile like he's more handsy and always trying to get my attention even when I'm taking care of our son. Finally I ask wtf is his deal he's actin like an idiot and he tells me he feels like our baby has replaced him. I mean I know I spoil my son he's my first and he's a baby but I didn't know I was ignoring my bf. what do I do?

Make sure baby's needs are met and that you aren't devoting every minute to the baby (not saying you are). Plan date nights while baby is sleeping. If he's still whining, tell him to grow up!

I do every time and I even get one of my friend to babysit when she's free so we can just have time together. But it seems like nothing's enough.

If you're doing everything you can and he still feels like that he needs to get over it then.

Tell him to switch places with you for a week and I bet he won't be whinning anymore...

Try your best but stay prepared. My ex-husband left because I was breast feeding our dd. She was just a tiny baby and we couldn't afford formula if we wanted to. I was doing what was best for our family but he couldn't deal with the baby needing me and my body every few hours. He felt replaced and ended up leaving.

If he liked it then he should have put a ring on it....

Good for you, what are the classes for? When he sees how hard it is to care for a baby without your help he will appreciate and respect you more.
