I have been home from hospital with our baby girl for 6 days.
At the hospital he was amazing, picking her up every chance he got, and looking so proud, showing her off to his family...but the day I came home everything changed..I let him know I was on my way home and by the time i got there he was having an anxiety attack (poor bloke)
He had them on and off for the first 3 days and didnt really hold or cuddle her because it made him feel worse, which was fine by me, I understand its a stressful situation having us rely on him and things like that.
But for the last few days he has seemed fine and still showed very little interest in bubs, the couple of times I did hand her over for a cuddle while I was doing dinner he lasted about two minutes then put her in the pram..
And today he is already on my case about what do I do all day while she is sleeping!!! I am still exhausted from the 3 days it took to push her out!! and I dont really care about housework right now!!
Im at a loss as what to do as he was so supportive and awesome for the first few days but now he always has an excuse...today I suggested he do some skin-to-skin for bonding and he scoffed at the idea and said it was just for mums..im worried he wont bond with her and when i go back to work she will play up in his care...
