Is your DH helping you with the baby or are you doing it all yourself?

My DH is helping some with the baby but he mainly does more with our 2 year old since I am having to spend so much time with the baby. DH does get up once in the middle of the night to give Jacob a bottle so that is nice.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I tend to Cole a majority of the time. DH will hold him for a while when he gets home and he feeds him changes him occasionally on the weekends. He also helps out with his baths if he is home. Their relationship right now is mostly just spending time together and "playing" which is fine with me. I'm up with Cole at night, but it's getting easier and easier.

DH helps in so many other ways, especially with Chase, that it all balances out

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!

My hubby helps a ton. He feeds, diapers, bathes, etc. I don't know how I am going to manage when he leaves this week!

My hubby also helps a ton. He feeds her bottles at night so that I can sleep (he's naturally a night owl whereas I'm a morning person) and has no qualms about diapers.

He helps when he's home. I'll nurse in the middle of the night the baby and he will take her and rock her to sleep when I'm really tired. He'll change diapers and do baths when he can. He also helps with Grady so I don't get too overwhelmed.

The only problem is he isn't home much. He's gone from 1pm till midnight Monday-Friday.

he helps when he can. he works 70 hours week. usually his only day off is sunday, so i'm doing a fair bit. when his hours allow it, he takes my oldest swimming during his work week, which gives me at least an hour of just the one baby, and she normally sleeps during that, so its lush!

He was more helpful in the beginning. We have been arguing lately about how he doesn't help much now. After reading about the help you all get I have a feeling the argument will resume today lol. He did say he would do better. But I haven't seen it yet.

Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!

DH does baths for both kids, holds JR while I am doing things (laundry, cooking, going to the bathoom!), and will change diapers if I ask. For the most part though, I do baby care and he helps with Allison. She can tell him what she wants vs guessing with JR!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Dh helps a ton! In fact if he doesn't have the chance to wake up in the middle of the night with Jackson, the next day he says he misses him! I feel bad sometimes when I don't get up to feed Jackson but I also wake up every 3 hours to pump, so I don't feel too bad! LOL

I would say I do about 90% of the baby stuff... I also EBF so at night I just nurse and put him back to bed. Obviously hubs will hold him when he's home and I need to do things, but he is spending a lot more quality time with our daughter, which I'm grateful for.
