So i have a 3 week old baby girl and a first time mum, i have three younger brothers so i have some idea of how to look after a baby but have learnt most of what to do by trial and error in the last few weeks. My df thinks if we keep her awake during the day she will sleep better at night and when i say shes hungry or tired he just doesnt listen and thinks if her eyes are open shes wide awake. I have tried several times to tell him otherwise and im the one who ends up having to try and settle her which is so hard sometimes, when you have tried everything and nothing works.
He was home for two weeks and this week has gone back to work and i have been letting her sleep lots and she does, then when df gets home and her eyes are open he thinks its "awake and play time" its taken me nearly 4 hours tonight to get her to sleep im so exhausted and df is sleeping on the couch. So im pretty ****ed off too.
Any advice on how to handle this. Im reaching boiling point and ready to scream. I hate it when he doesnt listen.
