Well, we can't all be Mary Poppins, now can we?

My child is finicky. So he needs to not wake her when it took me an hour to get her to sleep.

Re: Dear Hubby you can wake the baby when....

gah I am with you on that one. typical scenario in our family bed- 2 yr old, after being read to, playing and so forth will settle himself down and kinda stare off or roll over on his belly. This is the clue that he is almost asleep. do not look at him, talk to him, breathe funny or anything during this time. Meanwhile I am nursing 5 mo old next to him. As SOON as he settles down, DH looks up from his stupid phone and says to the 2 yr old, "night night baby, you are laying so nice, daddy loves you. We are gonna have fun tomorrow....." and goes on telling him all the stuff they are gonna do. So then? Said 2 yr old is all excited and jumps around....DH gets mad and tells him he has to settle down, baby wakes up and I kill DH. Whoops. Edit the last part

I stand by what I said. I would be frustrated yes but never go nuts at him and refuse sex that night because he felt the need to kiss his child.

Hold out on sex because he wouldn't help with laundry, lunch, or post dinner clean up, yup! But never kisses and hugs for his LO.

ETA: I should add I was 25 before my dad told me he loved me for the first time I can remember. So I'm a big biased

My DH is notorious for doing this. Along with the massive tickle/wrestle fest that takes place 10 minutes before bedtime . I'm thankful that our boys have such a loving, caring daddy... but yeah, it does make my evening harder! And at 37 weeks pregnant, with three hyper boys (ages 5, 3, and 15 months) to wrangle into bed, the last thing I need is for my evening to be harder .

Oh, my husband would be putting baby to sleep. Bonding experience and all that. That's how it works around here.

Nothing for me to get upset over, but a lesson for daddy.

I've tried that. Hand DD over to DH and she stays up and screams for me. She won't go to sleep for him. At least she's stopped nursing to sleep.

I have a standing rule in my house, for DH or anyone else for that matter. You wake the baby/toddler up, it's your job to get them back to sleep. Snuggles and cuddles and kisses are wonderful, but then since you disrupted things, you get to settle things.

Fabulous rule! I'm gonna write that one down and begin enforcing it. DD can scream for me and DH will have to handle it while I take a shower.

I'd give the baby to him and tell him to get her to sleep, get all the work done and after she's screamed at him for a while and he's at his wits end I'd take her back and try to get her to sleep. If it's going to take a long time it's going to take a long time right away or after DH has suffered a little.
