I'm sorry you're DH was like that. It reminds me of a conversation I had with my SIL.

She was talking about how her husband told her he didn't think she could handle more kids. She made a really good point though. Your DH will see you at your hard moments as a mother, but won't see other mom's go through those moments. So they have this perspective that other moms are handling things better and easier when that's simply not true. They have just as many hard moments and mess ups as anyone else. You're just not there to see them.

I agree that he's probably stressed out and overwhelmed as well, but I think that his point of view may be a little skewed as well. I'm sure that there are many dads who think and say these kinds of things. Especially right after a new baby when it's all so hard.
