I completely understand not wanting to leave knowing your LO will cry. My DH would never hurt my DD but in the first couple months his tone with her bothered me when he couldn't get her settled down. Try showing Your Partner LOs favorite ways to be held/stimulated etc. Babies can sense our moods, so if we are stressed holding baby then it's unlikely baby will calm down. This is why it's important for you to take care of yourself so that you can be less frazzled/stressed etc when taking care of LO. Explain this to your partner as well so he can try to be calm when he's primary caretaker. I agree with pp that it's important for LO and your partner to develop their relationship and bond! :thumbs up: Remember to Breathe Momma! You are doing great!!
