Just want to vent - feeling a little sad.
Things have been pretty tense for a while now and we had a heart to heart last night as I feel that he doesn't care out our baby, and he feels that I don't care about him.
He said he feels jealous and angry that the baby has come between us, and so he takes it out on her by rejecting her (eg, when she tries to get away if he changes her nappy and she cries, which she also does to me 10 times a day, then he takes it personally and gets angry at her and says she doesn't like him, then hands her back to me and gets busy in the backyard doing all chores unrelated to baby). I feel like he just works against me sometimes, like if I just get bub to sleep, he decides to start plunging the drain outside her bedroom and then wonders why I get annoyed. I feel that he doesn't care because he never has to get her to sleep.
I do love him, but I'm just getting so frustrated that he's missing the point - he has been given such a gift in his daughter but he just resents her and I can't seem to make him see. I suggested doing some things just the two of us, but he doesn't feel comfy leaving our baby with anyone (even tho she's 10 months!). Don't know what else to do ...
Grrrrrr, I won't go on and on. Does anyone else have these issues?
