Before I begin, I know that my boy is too young for a real routine yet. But the problem isn't so much with the baby but with my dh.
So, I have an 8 week old baby who is settling into a rough routine for bedtime. I bath him around 8.30 then feed him, then quiet cuddles til he falls asleep. This can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. With this routine he stays asleep for up to 5 hours. As you can imagine, 5 hours sleep is bliss.
DH works 3 nights a week and baby sleeps beautifully those nights. When dh is home, however, he can't seem to understand what quiet means.
He waits for me to be laying down with the baby, and decides that its time to have a chat. ..usually from the other side of the house!
I've tried explaining to him that that is not on, that it would be better to wait for bub to be asleep, or if it can't wait that he needs to come into the room and talk quietly, and he says he understands. But a minute later he's doing it again.
Any ideas on how to get it through his thick head that quiet means quiet?
