Baby alone with daddy

Whenever I leave my almost 5-month-old baby alone with my husband he screams pretty much the whole time, whether it is for 20 minutes or 2 hours. Does anyone else have this problem and what advice might anyone offer?

Daddy needs to learn how to soothe. Baby isn't used to daddy, daddy's uncomfortable with baby. Babies can sense people who aren't confident!

Teach your husband how to soothe. He may be frustrated because the baby does fuss when you leave, which is communicating itself to your little one, stressing little one out, and the screaming continues.

Thing is, what may come naturally to you, as a mom, may NOT come naturally to your husband. Women are geared to take care of kids. Men are not. It's not in their wiring, so to speak, and they need help learning. I promise, though that this will not last forever! Just keep encouraging your husband, and telling him how well he's doing in his attempts. Soon, I promise, they'll both be more comfortable with each other, and you may be able to get a whole hair appointment complete without a problem! (or bingo game, or shower...LOL)
