Is it just reality that only the moms wake up in the middle of the night to change and feed their baby? My husband is great, he does the cooking which is a huge weight off my shoulders but I wish he'd wake up and take care of our baby every once in awhile so I could get some sleep.

I'm a sahm too, but my hubby would help me on the nights that I was having a really hard time. Have you talked to your hubby about it and ask for his help. Maybe on the weekends (or what his weekends might be.)

I'm also a stay at home mom and my husband works 6 days a week. He gets up on Sat night for one feeding and then it's me the rest of the week. I miss sleepโ˜บ

I tried to do it mostly myself, but when she was going through really bad periods of waking a lot, we took shifts. That worked well so we could each get some sort of a stretch of uninterrupted sleep. We did this even when he was working and I was staying home. Everyone needs sleep, working or not. Now she sleeps through the night. YESSSSSSS! :)

I don't know what his schedule is like, but I never expect my fiancee to get up with the baby due to his. Besides, I nurse so there really isn't a point of him doing so.

I nursed the first seven weeks then I dried up so he's bottle fed. Luckily my son started sleeping till 5-6 in the morning so now that I'm getting between 6-7 hours of sleep at night, I have no problem getting up every morning to feed him. I missed sleep soo much lol

Unfortunately that's how it is in most families. My hubby didn't get up much

I'm staying home at the moment so I get up during the week and DH takes over on his days off.
