Anyone fight with their spouse more than usual post baby!? My little girl is 6 months now and we can't stop fighting about the littlest things! I take care of her 24/7 and he has yet to do much at all yet we argue because he is upset that I make a lot of the decisions. I just needed to reach out and vent!

Bath time is good,my husband would come home from work and bath with our son and then get him bed ready..still to this day! Whats also nice is to go for a walk together as a family. We have a forrest way that we try go walk every sunday. Its nice to get some fresh air and talk about things together. And its nice because we walked there with our son when he was a baby in a stroller..then once our son started walking he would come walking with us,now we take his bycicle with and he rides his bycicle. My husband also goes swimming with our son once a week. They have a good bond. Try doing things that your husband can also take part in. And the arguing is normal i guess. I remember the first two weeks when we were home i would get upset over small things..i guess it just takes a little time to adjust that its not just you and your partner anymore.

Yeah we tried the bottle and she took it when she was younger but now she is refusing it and that's where all the tension is starting to build between us.

Can you recommend anything that we can do to help him bond more or have him feel more in charge!? I breastfeed too and like you said it devastated him when she cries for him and as soon as she sees me or she is in my arms she stops immediately!

This happens a lot of times after couples have babies.
My husband & I done it, and we still do it every now & then.
Maybe try asking his opinions on things and let him help out a bit more. sometimes the guys just need a understanding of what all we do.
