First i should say that DH snores really loud so pre dd we slept in separate rooms because i am a very light sleeper. DD (8mo) is also a VERY light sleeper. DH could sleep through anything including her cries. He is also not very nice at night and has no clue. Like when i have woken him up at wits end he has said "leave me the f alone" and put a pillow over his head, he could also get violent if I push like take the pillow away and tell him he needs to help or whatever. He is not like that in general and WANTS to help at night but he cant control himself in the moment when he is tired.
Ok so that said. I just cant deal with no sleep anymore I am turning into a person I dont like and I really want him to help
DD nurses every 2 hours and mostly wants mommy and comfort now that she is used to that.
SO how can DH help? I have told him to get up and walk around wearing her in her ergo until she falls asleep then put her in bed... that hasnt happened yet but it would be helpful
What does your dp/dh do to help with a nursing baby at night?
