DH is in charge of watching Victoria for an hour or two each night. When she gets hungry, he feeds her a small bottle and brings her to me to feed a little more. I don't think it's too much to ask. He normally stays up till 1am anyway.
Well, last night I went to bed around 10. DH was watching tv. At 5am I woke up and my heart stopped because the baby was not in bed and when I opened the bedroom door I could hear her crying. It still makes me so upset. I ran up the stairs and Victoria was half hanging out of her swing crying. DH was sleeping on the couch, tv off. No breast milk thawed for him to feed her more than once, 2oz.
Lord only knows how long she was crying up there, hungry and upset. It makes me so sad. She relies on me for food, she eats every two hours at night. I rely on DH for help and he makes some very selfish choices.
I failed my little girl last night.

I kno how you feel. One night a couple of weeks ago, Aubree slept longer than usual and woke up literally screaming to eat. Now, usually in the middle of the night, Mike will get up and hold her when she's screaming while I make her a bottle. This one night, he was "really tired" (seriously?!) And refused to get out of bed. I could hear her screaming from downstairs and it literally broke my heart that my poor baby was screaming alone in her crib. I was crying myself I was so upset about it and it bothered me all day. He hasn't done that since, lucky for him.
Um, I would be PISSED. Frank can sleep through a lot too. I think I told you guys that I woke up the other night and he had rolled onto Cal's arm and her AND him both slept through. Needless to say, it scared me to death and he's been on the couch ever since I don't blame you for being upset, but you didn't fail her. Lucky for us, we don't start doing things that traumatize them they they remember for at least another 5 or 6 years.
