Since i had my daughter, im nervous to leave her home with her dad. It may be becasue I do everything for her when shes upset like feed her and chane her diper and everything.. he only helps when Im busy doing something. But am I the only one who feels this way? I know hes a good dad and everything but im just a little nervous..

I am sorry to all you mommies that have this but I didn't I only couldn't leave our sons with daddy since I am the bottle and I take them everywhere I go. so he couldnt' really help in that part. I hate pumping.. But when my oldest didnt want to nurse anymore I had no problem with letting daddy have him. but then daddy became an over the road turcker and that was the end for me to get out or alone. now daddy is a local driver so I leave both boys with him whenever I can. even more when my second son stopped breastfeeding. because of our pregnancy. sorry you feel that way. good luck and it will get easier with time and the more kids you have...

When I look back now to how anxious I was with my first baby!! I didn't even like to have her in a different room to me and would take her basinette into different rooms of the house with me. Your maternal, protective instincts are obviously very strong and very natural. That being said, please let yourself have some space from bubs, even just a short walk by yourself if that's all you can cope with to start. You will need that bit of you time to survive this motherhood journey!!

It's normal. I didn't leave my daughter home alone with daddy for a wile. He's a great dad, I just...couldn't do it. But the older she got, the easier it was. They have to put in enough time to be worthy. ;)

That is normal. I was like this with both of my children. It will get better older she gets. Mommies are the best and we do it the best thats all that is =). It has nothing to do how good of a dad your hubby might be, we`re just better. Plus we have that special bond with the little once, common we felt them for so long in our bellies. Trust me you are not the only one feeling this way. Congrats by the way
