Our son is 9 months old. Dad works for himself , but hasnt really had any work for awhile so is at home most of the time. He stays up late most nights and then sleeps in to bout lunchtime everyday. Our son gets up many times during the night and dad has never got up once for him or got up with him in the morning. He never does any dishes or washing or cleaning or cooking. He has never sterilised or made up a bottle for him. He plays with him sometimes but most of the time he is with me. He used to change his nappy occasionaly , but recently if he has him, he just tells me that his nappy needs changing and hands him back to me.
What are other dads doing? I dont mind doing most things around the house , but i am getting really frustrated doing everything! I have tried bringing it up but it has never changed anything and i dont want to cause an argument.
I wish i could just do everything and not let it bother me, but it does.
Is it just a male thing to not do anything? Are other households like this?
