Am I the only one with an unsupportive husband?
My husband supported me breastfeeding until she was born. Since then he's been pushing me to put her "on the bottle".
A little back story, he has a 2 year old from a previous relationship. He was a very fussy baby until he was 8 weeks old when she stopped breastfeeding and put him on formula. From then on he was a very good baby, content, slept through the night, and just very happy. His mother was drinking, popping pills, and in general eating very poorly so it was best he was on formula anyway.
Our daughter is 4 months old and has been a very fussy handful since day 1. She is very gassy, hates to be put down, only poops every 5-7 days, and does not sleep through the night. When I'm home with her she nurses every 2 hours. I've changed my diet and that has helped with her discomfort. He thinks I'm not making enough and that my milk is bad and that's what her problem is. He makes comments about me starving her. At daycare she has free access to all the milk she wants and she just isn't a big eater. I hate that he no longer supports me. This is my only baby and ultimately my decision and I won't give up, I just wish he was supportive of my desire. And I remind him, if she goes on a bottle, that means you have to get up with her at night. He laughs and I know it's because he won't but that's not the point.
Has alone else had an unsupportive SO? How did you cope?
Her diaper count is good and she's growing. Slowly, but definitely growing.
