Figuring out all the new relationships and roles when a new baby arrives can be very challenging. Most new

My DH really has been a blessing. Although I am BF my DH helps in all other areas. He does diaper duty, and because we do cloth diapers he also rinses them out and will do a load of them if I don't get to them. He holds her when ever I ask or he can. He goes to work early so I try not to wake him. Although the other morning Noelle was being stubborn and crying and I was exhausted and I was crying. Thankfully my DH stepped up, took her got her to sleep and sent me to bed.
Definitely could not do it without him!

DH is great, he jumps in always without complaint or me having to even ask. In the middle of the night, he'll change Dillon's diaper and then bring him to me to nurse. Poor guy has to be up by 4:30am to go to work, so I do try and let him get his sleep...don't want him running power tools with tired eyes & body!
When he gets home, he's been cooking all the dinners and will hold Dillon after I've fed him so I can eat dinner too.

Hubby is AMAZING. He got a crash course due to my section and has been fantastic this whole time. Gets up at night, changes diapers, holds the baby... All this when I'm a SAHM while he works. I am blessed.
Although household stuff is still completely foreign territory... lol Nothing house-wise gets done without nagging!

Excuse me while I laugh hysterically.

Sometimes I wonder if my DH even knows what 'baby care' is.

DH is a great great help with baby and my two girls, he does everything, he is soo in love with the baby that he always pick baby up from her crib to the swing to get her closer to him during the day time when he is in the living room watching TV.
