My baby doesn't have colic, but sometimes she screams so loud and off and on for long periods of time. I am usually good for about 2 1/2 hours, but after having her all day and then dealing with the screaming at night, my patience runs thin. My husband will take her for 30 minutes and then start screaming at our daughter b/c he gets frustrated. He's had no experience with babies and is doing a horrible job right now. He has no patience and only wants to help with our daughter when she's sleeping or about to fall asleep. I am so tired and I am trying my best, but I hate seeing my daughter cry and not knowing how to fix it. It also doesn't help when I am trying to be patient with her and my husband is complaining and griping at me as well. He doesn't do anything really and acts like I am asking him to take on the whole parenting thing. Most days, I feel like I am raising my daughter on my own. Its very frustrating. Every time I talk to my husband about it, he gets mad at me telling me he's trying really hard or he gets pissy and nothing seems to be getting through to him. Even when he comes home from work, and I've had her for 8 hours straight, he won't pitch in and complains when he has to help. I don't know what to do; I am almost at my wits end.
