My husband is frustrating me to no end. I dont know where to turn to. He says he doent have to worry about her until i go back to work. I am so frustrated!! I have 2 other children other than the baby and he wont even play with them or even acknowledge the baby. I feel like I am on my own in this whole situation. Someone help!

What gender are your other kids? I found my hubby was a bit nervous about changing our daughter as we had a son first and obviously being a man he was ok with changing him, however when it came to her nappies he was a bit scared of hurting her because he didn't know which bits were which and what not lol.
If he's just being lazy then I would just pass him the baby as I'm leaving the room and call back over my shoulder "I'm popping to the toilet/shower/shop/whatever, she needs a nappy change, can you do it while I'm busy? Thanks" Sort of give him no choice, and make yourself unavailable, then if he still doesn't do it and lets her sit in it, I'd give him hell, lol. Good luck!
