advice on splitting up waking up with the baby in the middle of the night. My daughter has recently started waking up around 4-6 am and ready to play. I am a sahm BUT I do daycare 10 hours a day. My fiance works a full time job and a part time job one or two nights a week. We have been having an issue with splitting baby duties since day one. This morning was just another instance of how bad its getting. I woke up with her at 5 yesterday morning. So when she woke up at 4 this morning,I asked him to get her. It just turned ugly. He just doesnt understand how tired I really am and how much I really do. So in turn,he told me I was being "a selfish bitch". Seriously?
He works at a shipyard working with machinery and says that waking up will make him too tired and not able to be safe at work. I wake up at the same time to start watching a few kids,along with housework and taking care of the pets. He doesnt change diapers often or bathe her or feed her. He doesnt know what clothes fit her and he has never cut her nails. He just plays with her when its convenient for him. Asking him to do anything to help me is like a burden. Moms,Im at my wits end. help!
