When your babies were born did their dad

1. Get up with them in the middle of the night?

2. Feed them?

3. Change their diaper?

4. Give baths?
___________________________

1. Get up with them in the middle of the night? A few times, but my dh deployed when Dakota was 3 weeks so it was only Dakota and I until he was 7 months old.

2. Feed them? Yes. Josh loved feeding time. lol

3. Change their diaper? Yes -- but he believed in taking turns. I hated that. If Dakota needed to be changed, I just wanted it done.. I didn't care whos 'turn' it was.

4. Give baths? Yes .. Josh and I would both be in the bathroom at bath time. We loved watching Dakota play and smile in the tub.

Dh changes Ellie's diapers but I mostly just bf without using a bottle most of the time. I think once she begins to sit up and play more dh will have fun giving a bath but I do that atm now too. Lol

1. Get up with them in the middle of the night? he was only home for 2 Weeks before leaving for basic. He did get up with me for those first couple weeks. He doesn't get up with her now.

2. Feed them? Feeding is the one thing he does without complaining

3. Change their diaper? Only if I ask him and then he whines about it the whole time

4. Give baths?
I dont think he's ever given her a bath

1. Get up with them in the middle of the night? He sleeps through her crying in the middle of the night most of the time, so no

2. Feed them? Yes. She's formula fed so he can give her the bottle when she's hungry

3. Change their diaper? We take turns on it but it's usually him when he's home from work

4. Give baths? We view baths as family time so we're both in there. He has given her baths before. I had a funeral to go to in Georgia back in February and I left her home with him so he got to experience single-parent life for a week

1. Get up with them in the middle of the night? My daughter's father, yes. My son's father, no.

2. Feed them? Neither did. I breastfed my daughter so he was useless. My second child (my current husband's 1st son) was bottle fed, but I got up with him because my husband worked so I felt it unfair to make him wake in the middle of the night disturbing his sleep when I stayed home. He didn't help with my next son, he also was breastfed.

3. Change their diaper? My daughter's father, yes. My son's father, rarely. He does it more now for my toddler because he requests daddy to do it.

4. Give baths? My daughter's father, yes. My son's father, not as little babies, but now he bathes our youngest son all the time. I think he has more fun with the rubber ducks and bubbles than our son does LOL.

My husband feels useless with little babies. He is wonderful with the 1 and up crowd LOL. That's fine with me I prefer infants LOL.

Yes to all. Matt's always been a very hands-on dad.
