My 6 week old has his nights and days flipped upside down. So I started having more awake time during the day, making sure he doesn't nap too long, yada yada. Well he started finally going right back to sleep after he awakes for his night feeds, which is all I want. Waking to eat overnight is no problem for me, but staying up for 4 hours after IS. Anyway, so my husband was off for the past couple of days, and here he comes disrupting things. He picks him up 20 minutes after he goes down for a nap which throws everything off and makes the baby so tired he naps in the evening which makes him wired at night. So last night, he was up from 1-5am. The night before, 1-4am. My hubby wants to help but doesn't remember to turn his fan and night light on when he puts him down overnight, changes and feeds him with the lights on, and of course during the day he pish poshes the schedule. He's only here a few nights a week bc of his work schedule so I'm the one up w baby each night. He wants to help and that is great, but he's NOT HELPING. He doesn't do these things to be difficult or anything. But you know men, it's difficult to explain and then he feels like he can't do anything right w baby. And I understand but sometimes I just want to do it all myself. It would be hard but at least consistent. Anyone else ever feel like this?
