Re: Are we stuck in the 1950's???
Oh em gee. I am a staunch feminist, and this article freaked me out. Like some other posters said, some things are innocuous -- like going to bed at the same time, or making time together to watch movies. Those are excellent suggestions.
But anyone wants me -- with my torn up hoo-ha, gigantic painful boobs, and my screeching newborn -- to wear skimpy clothes and entertain my man so he won't loose interest ... or make a "daddy care package" ... that's insane.
It reminds me of the most recent episode of American Horror Story where Franka Potente has postpartum psychosis and the good doctor gives her a lobotomy so she can be a good wife and mom. Awesome.
That said, my husband is really selfless, and he's good with big transitions. I, not so much. He took great care of me when DS was born.
