My husband is always too tired or busy for me :(

Hey moms,

Me and my husband just had a baby two months ago. Lately it seems like he NEVER has time for me bc he is either too tired or too busy for me. It's almost like "hanging out" with me is a chore to him. I feel like I have to struggle to get his attention, and it's like he disregards how important he is to me and how much I care for him. He works, while I am still on maternity leave. While I understand that he works right now and I don't, I am the one that wakes up every night to care for/nurse the baby and I care for her all day. I feel slightly heartbroken bc I feel like he isn't in love with me anymore and I am still very in love with him :'(

Any advice on what to do? I feel like the more I mention any of this to him, the more annoyed he is at me.

Does your husband also wake to the cries at night? At least you can get some rest during the day getting up to the baby at night. But he can't. Even if he wakes when the baby cries and falls back asleep, his sleep is still disrupted and this will make a person very tired.

can you get someone to care for the baby and just make a night or day just for the both of you
