I have a 3 month old baby and i have put school and things i have to do on hold until i find some online classes or find a babysitter i can trust. While i am at home with the baby my boyfriend works so i do all the house work and all the baby work until he gets home. Is that a bad thing? I need advice!

There is no greater job or challenge than being a mom or father for that matter. Enjoy the time you have for your baby and your home. Many working moms would love to be able to stay at home with their children. This is a good thing definitely not a bad thing. If you help one another in the time he is at home that means things are done quicker and you have time for one another.

No its not a bad thing...I am a stay at home mom who takes care of the kids an does the house work. While my fiancé works an brings in all the money for the family. But when he gets home he helps me feed an get the kids ready for bed so that i can have a lil break. So we both pull the load an work together!

No girl, you are not wrong at all..I have 3 kids which are 8, 9 and 13 now. But to be honest with you,if your boyfriend is willing to help you with the house work, changing the baby, washing and feeding the baby, then you are blessed..TAKE WHAT HELP YOU CAN GET !!

I had no help my mom and family was in a different state and my husband worked all day and made the money to provide us with food, clothes and a roof over our head. I never asked for help and trust me I never got any help. I did it all. I had to take care of the kids, clean the house, wash the clothes and make sure supper was ready and he did NOTHING but work and make the money. Now looking back I should have made him do somethings around the house and help me with the kids. we have been married 13 years and he still dont do anything but work and make the money, I still do it my advice is to take the help and be proud of a man that is willing to help you.

No I cant see what is wrong with that. It is called sharing the load. I did all the house work and looked after the kids and when they were new borns my husband would do the night feeds on a Friday and Saturday night so that I could have two nights of solid sleep. It is called being an active parent. I did not want to farm my kids out to anybody else and I stayed at home until they were at school and then I went back to work and studied at night when they were in bed.
