How can I make dh understand what its like for me to be home alone with ds all day?
Dh is awesome & so supportive most of the time but he just really doesnt get why i often need to basically hand him ds when he walks in the door, so we often end up arguing when he is off faffing around doing other things first & leaving me still sitting here holding ds. Ive told him im happy to do the other things ( cook dinner etc) cause to be honest (& I know it sounds terrible) but I just need a break from ds after not being away from him & hardly being able to put him down for the whole day.
He also doesnt get why I get upset if he works back or wants to do the grocery shopping in the evening but its because im absolutely knackered by the time he gets home (im still struggling with sleeping/settling & reading ds's cues so im basically feeding him or holding him or trying to soothe him all day & its exhausting).
Im breastfeeding & struggle to find the time during the day to express, so its not really possible for me to leave ds with dh for a day to show him what its like
It probably sounds like im being selfish but I just get so tired (mentally as well as physically) & I really want to make dh understand
