    Can i start off by saying what awesome husbands you all have!!

    My exDP didnt get up at all, i'd be crying pacing the halls and still nothing. He would get up if i went into our room screaming at him too because i was about to loose my sh!t. When DS was on a bottle he wouldnt even make a bottle if DS had woken while he was getting for work. I still had to get up and do it.... oh well. Good to know there are hands on dads out there anyway!

    My bubs are breastfeed, but DH wouldn't anyway which is fine with me as he works. If I'm exhausted I will often nudge him to go and settle if bubs doesn't need a feed but I always feel guilty.

    Yes. Every single night, since they were newborn till now. Except when he's travelling.My youngest is 2 and still wakes up for nappy change and feed. I dont mind it at all. My husband handles baby and toddler better than I do.

    Our youngest is now 2 & sleeping through the night but yes he did most of the night feeds when I was no longer breastfeeding & even when I was feeding would pick them up, change their nappy & then wrap & put them down when I finished feeding. I'm very thankful just how hands on he is

    No.

    DH gets u at 4am to go to work to provide me with the luxury of being at home. He doesn't have the ability to stay in his PJs all day and doze on and off as I did when my babes were waking at night.

    I did al night feeds for DS2. I was very unwell after DS1s birth so he did a large share of them, until I was well enough to take over. Granted our babies slept 12 hours a night from a couple of months old though.

    My DH was wonderful when ds was a newborn. Ds use to get up between 3-4 times a night and DH told me to stay in bed as well. I agree, I think it's a bonding thing. So many great daddy's we are all very luck x

    Your DH sounds awesome. I'd let him do it if he wants to, which it sounds like he does.

    I breastfeed so there is only so much my DH can do, but he will try to resettle her sometimes for me.

    he got up every feed, did the bum change while i peed, then made me a milo while i fed.
    this time im happy for him to sleep, as long as he gets the toddler up in the morning so bub and i can sleep in

    Oh my yes he does! DD was very full on and only slept for 20 mins at a time! If she slept longer I usually finally used that chance to do housework or feed myself or get dinner ready. I had no breaks and we discussed it, even if I did they were few and far between and was nothing compared to 8 hours away from the house without having to look after DD. If she has started to sleep better before I returned to work I would have done more night feeds. I did in fact do most of them anyway.
