My BF leaves at 9.30PM and returns 7.30AM, Monday - Thursday nights.
How does all the other night duty family's cope with a new born?
We have a small house, so I am thinking that he may not get much sleep with a new born in the house?
Also, turning into 'day mode' for the weekends seems to be messing with him more then he likes to admit.
Any tips? I am really concerned about his health and state of mind when we have this baby.

DH leaves house 745am returns home between 4-5pm, no weekend work!
I work 3-11pm two times a week, kids take school bus to DH work those nights.
After reading this thread I am grateful for how lucky I have it - DH and I equally share morning routine and night routine if I'm not working.
How do you and your kids cope all the hours some of your DHs are away from the house?!
I would imagine some DHs are gone before kids up, home when they asleep or going to bed? Where's the time for quality time with you / the kids?

We get time together for a couple of hrs every evening, and then when he is on R & R and the kids are in school.
So I do the morning routine by myself, and generally try to have homework done and the kids eating dinner when DH gets home, and then he spends time with them while I cook our dinner, tidy, get ready for the next day etc.
This is much better then it has been in the past when he worked away Monday to Friday!

Dh leaves at 8:30 (sometimes earlier) and gets home around 9/10pm. He also works some Saturdays. Our goal is to have him home for dinner most nights by next year!

Dhs general hours are 10am-10pm, 5 days a week with Monday & Tuesday off.
Sometimes he stays later, sometimes he goes in later. He is a chef, so it depends on what he's got on that day. But although he works long hours, it's nice to have him here in the mornings with our two boys.
