    Default Does feeding method really impact on division of labour?

    I can tell you that in our house from the last 2 months of pregnancy to the first few months of baby I only do what the baby (or my body) allows and dh does the rest (incompetently)

    We work from home though so there's far greater scope for flexibility. Also it's still not ideal as he doesn't do things as I would like, ie brushes their teeth hopelessly, lets them throw cereal everywhere etc.

    I could not have my partner working at home, he would drive me crazy!

    He was great the 3 weeks he had off once baby was born, but I was counting down the days until he went back to work

    He does drive me insane but if we split up I'd need to find someone to help with both the business and the children heh heh

    On the plus side, he got to experience all domestic and child related duties whilst I was recovering!

    I think he was glad to go back to work lol

    Whether I was fresh home from a c-section, breastfeeding, formula feeding or back at work - I.did.EVERYTHING!!!! Oh no sorry, maybe ex gave DS a shower the equivelant time of stirring the dinner twice before I had to go get him, or maybe he fed DS a bottle until dinner was finished so passed him to me to finish the bottle and put him to bed while he ate.

    Hmmmm, unfortunately my hubby is a bit non-compliant

    Even at 40 weeks pregnant with twins I was doing everything. I've worked out he'll step up when he absolutely HAS to, but if I show ANY capability at all, he leaves it to me grrrr
