He can't feed the baby.
He hasn't changed a diaper.
He hands him to me whenever Corbin gets fussy.
He takes showers without bringing in the carseat and baby.
He doesn't wake up at night with Corbin.

But he's pissed off he didn't get enough sleep.
Because he went to a bar last night.
Poor dh.

I would punch him in the face every time he complained : )
But seriously, why don't you pass baby off to him, go take a shower and LOCK the door? He will figure out how to soothe him.

Tried that. No, he won't. Corbin will cry until I'm done or I run out. Because he's spoiled at 2 weeks old. *eyeroll*

Funny how nothing seems to really change for the hubby/SO's ... Mammas do all the work and they complain about being neglected but god forbid they help out....
Sorry cant help but I can join in on the rant :-).

Time to trot out the world's tiniest violin for him. (If you're not familiar with it, t's played by sawing your forefinger back and forth across your thumb.)

And then give him some hair of the dog that bit him and a few dozen chores. As my mom used to say, "You wanna cry? I'll give you something to cry about!"

Oh jeez, sorry! Sounds like your DH needs a dose of reality. What does he expect from a 2 weeks old baby?!

Oooh, now that pisses me off. I'd be telling dad that since he's proven himself unqualified as a dad, you've made him an appointment for a castration so he never again has to worry about a "spoiled" baby because he'll be unable to father them.

You do realize who the real spoiled baby is in your home, right? And the D does NOT stand for "dear" here. "Darned" is too kind. Want my baseball bat?

Really? He should do more to help. Dh used to take baths with our babies when they were tiny, he changed as many diapers as I did too. I wouldn't feel an.ounce of pity for him. I'd be super annoyed. Men can be so selfish and oblivious sometimes.

On day one he mentioned crying it out lol
Yeah, I'll take the bat but dh I don't think knows too much about young babies.
He has been sweet enough to let me take a week off of dish duty. Not that he washes them himself :)

Wow. If he were my husband, he would (1) have a frying pan impression in his forehead and (2) be sleeping outside because the couch is too good for him!

DH did that once. So the next night everytime DD needed to be fed he woke up with me, changed her diaper and I made him stay awake with me while I nursed and put her to bed. It took just 1 night then he stopped complaining about lack of sleep.
