I hope I don't sound completely unreasonable but earlier this morning I was so annoyed and upset. F now sleeps all night and tends to wake around 5am for a feed. I really don't mind getting up at this time and I'm more than happy to do it everyday especially when H is working but every once in a while it'd be quite nice if H could do one of them at the weekends just so that I can have a little break. Most Sundays, H is up early to go and play golf and therefore doesn't like to do the feed on Sundays so I usually ask him to do the Saturday morning. This Friday night however, he was out drinking and got home at midnight and therefore didn't feel up to much yesterday morning, I mentioned something to him yesterday about it and he said as he was going to be up early this morning he'd be able to do the feed this morning for me.
So, at 5:05am this morning F is waking up. H doesn't usually hear F stir at all in the night (convenient for men isn't it) so I was surprised when he got up to go and make the bottle. Brilliant I thought. When he came back I reminded him that F would need changing before feeding. H just looked at me and said that he couldn't feed him as he had to be up soon. When I reminded him of what he said yesterday he denied it and made me out to be making it up. He gets back into bed and I take F off to feed him.
This probably sounds really stupid to get upset over but since he's started sleeping through it feels a bit like H doesn't think I'd like a break or any help. On the whole, H is brilliant but I really don't think he appreciates how hard it can be looking after a little one 24/7. He gets to go to work and not see F having his moments and when I tell him about them he doesn't believe me. He likes to remind me that I wanted a baby and he's right but does that mean I'm not allowed to have a lie in every now and then?
I feel a little bad moaning about this because I'm going out for a few hours this afternoon to celebrate a friend's birthday whilst H has F but it's not like I do this regularly.
Anyone else feel like this at times?
