Yep! Our first was a little fusser, and I worked the evening shift 3 days a week. He just had to figure it out. It helped that I was gone, gone, and he couldn't just hand her over and say "she needs you".......he rocked, he paced the apartment parking lot complex in the stroller, he wrapped her up in a tee shirt I had nursed her in that smelled like me, and he learned to do it, and they developed their own rhythm.
