Is your baby's daddy not invovled?

I just wanted to post this because I might get some mom with the same issue. I have a 8 month old daughter and from the moment she was born the dad seems like it's my responsibilty to care for her and me alone. He drinks all the time and is never home. When he is at home he says a few words of I love yous and doesn't seem to interested after that. I give all my love to her and feel that at the end of the day I have no love for him and he has little interest in us. He does things in front of her, even though she's a baby, I don't think is appropriate. I just wish after she came along and now getting older with each day that he would be more involved and more of a loving father. I am a breastfeeding mother and it took away feeding time with her in the beginning, but now he won't even feed her baby food. When she wakes in the morning he gets up and leaves from the first sound of her. I must note that "has just now started sleeping in the bedroom" "she sleeps in her own bed". Are there any moms out there with a daddy like this?

No, not me. I am sorry to hear this. It is possible he is just not a baby person. This may change when she gets a little older and able to interact more with him. I know my 4 yr old and daddy are closer now then ever before. I think he felt like there really wasn't anything he could do. Except the icky stuff and lets face, no one wants to do those things. I would give it some time before you get all worked up over it. That is just my opinion and keep in mind I don't know your whole situation. So go with your gut. Good luck. :)
