Stay at home mom dilemma! Help!

Brittany - posted on 10/25/2013 ( 3 moms have responded )




OK so I am a first time stay at home mom! My husband is the provider. I cook, clean, do laundry, and care for our daughter 100% every day. (When I say 100% I mean diapers, baths, feedings, putting her to bed, washing bottles/ all!) He has kept her for an hour or 2 maybe 3 times in the 5 months since she was born. He takes care of us financially and does a great job. He cares for the outdoor aspects of our home and the home repairs. We did agree to this arrangement when she came along but now that I am living it every day it seems so unfair. I feel like he should do more, but know he thinks I'm just at home all day on vacation or something. Does anyone else feel the same way? Any advice?!

Or leave him for about 6 hours with your little one. He will soon understand what you do.
