My son seems to always be eating, I a stay at home mom. My spouse works full time however when he is home he will change diapers and hold him in all he spends 40 mins with him tops. Yet he will play a video game for over 40 minutes. I recently read that even if your spouse is working full time they should split the work with you. I would cut him slack because he is the only one working but after reading that I am no longer sure. He says that our son seems like his always eating And since I breast feed well only I can do that. Any advice ??? I really don't want to start resenting him

I feel like I have expressed myself to him and that's about all I can do as you said just to wait it out.

Sure thing, just explaining to him how you feel is all u can do, ive learned that you cant force guys to want to be involved, wait it out girl :)

The same exact thing happened with my husband, i breastfeed my son and im a stay at home mom, i tried to talk to my husband a million times about it but he only became more involved when my son got old enough to interact. now my husband loves hanging out with him. i guess its just a guy thing :( sorry i couldnt help more!
