My Spouce and I have been on and Off for the last 4 years. He was not really around after my daughter was born and I brought her up myself.
Now we have a son who is 9 months old and he thinks he knows how to parent him? Please give me some adive where I can help him understand how to raise a baby?

Example: he tried not to give a bottle to our son cause he wants to tough him up... And thinks he does not need a bottle at 9 months old to fall alseep or needs food in the night cause he's fat!

Our baby is Normal weight

Oh my, that is a problem. Have you tried giving him literature on the subject? I don't know how much of a reader your spouse is, but mine is academic and doesn't really understand anything if it's not in print, lol. Maybe email him a couple of parenting articles that you come across.

The problem is you have to put the wellfare of your child first but keep your hubby onside. I would laugh and make a joke of it recalling how it happened with your first child and what you did so that he gets the information you need him to have without being patronised. Or maybe try writing down a plan for how you want your son looked after while he is there and ask him for help in writing it so that you can discuss things without laying the blame at his door. Good luck, it's going to be a hard one.
