DS is turning 3 months Sunday and I'm simply in love! He is my first one (and probably only one) and I just love him so much :) I went back to work when he was 7 weeks, at 4 days a week (very flexible schedule, I work 3 days in a row then have 2 days off, then work 1 day, then 1 day off, which I like a lot!). I pump as much as I can at work but it's not enough so DH (who stays at home with DS) has to supplement with a little formula (it used to stress me out but now that DS is taking it without fussing I made peace with formula :P )
ANYWAY, my reason for starting this thread is because DH is always telling me how a whiny butt DS is... I try not to call home when I'm at work but each time I do I hear DS crying in the background and it just breaks my heart... I think that he is so fussy because he barely gets any sleep when DH is with him... While when I'm with him he takes regular nap (waking up at around 9, taking a nap a 12, 3, 5 then goes to bed around 9 or 10). When DH is with him he sometimes don't sleep AT ALL and finally falls asleep at 11pm (I get off work at 10pm). The thing is that I put him to sleep while nursing him and I think that's the problem... he misses the nipple! But what can I do? We can't afford me not working (DH is disabled and cannot work)... I offered him to work 3 days a week and he was all defensive, saying that he loves spending time with his son, that he's all right, etc... And me to say that they don't seem so happy, DH complaining of DS's moods, DS crying all day when I'm away... Then him to say that he can handle it. Yeah, he can handle it, but it breaks my heart to think that my son is unhappy 4 days a week!! I exaggerate, I know my husband takes good care of him, he just misses mommy's touch, doesn't know how to put his son to sleep...
Anyway, I don't now if y'all have any suggestion for me... If not it was good to vent hehe!
