Are there any universal "duties" a sahp has or a wohp has?

My friends think I'm anal because I tick off what comes through every morning.

The one "universal" duty that I, and ONLY I can do as a SAHM is nurse my infant and toddlers on demand. I believe in attachment parenting and that it is biological harmful for an infant to be separated from it's mother for any extended time, on a consistant basis,

Actually many wohms and wahms have been able to nurse their infants on demand. So it isn't "unique" to sahm. Certainly it is *easier* to nurse as a sahm, but not "unique".

I'm sorry, what I meant by that was that no one else but ME can nurse my children.


So in that aspect, it is absolutely unique.

Actually, wet nurses have been used for millenia. So, again, not unique.

Um I guess you're just not getting "it", or maybe you just want to argue semantics?

This is the sahm/wohm debate board. If you want to debate breast feeding- go to the breadfeeding/bottle feeding debate board.

What do you view as the SAHP's duties if the SAHP is the dad?
