I'm feeling a little frustrated with my DH lately and his concept of what life with a newborn is going to be like. Don't get me wrong, he has been great about helping me get the nursery setup (I think he's nesting because he wants everything setup like now, LOL) but when I try to talk to him about how I'm going to be feeling and the demands the baby is going to have on me, I just don't think he gets it.
For example, he doesn't seem to understand why I need a breast pump (still researching them) - just today I was telling him about him helping me with the feedings (if he could give the baby expressed milk) so I could get some sleep and his response was, "Couldn't you take naps during the day?" and I said, "Well she'll still need to eat during the day! Some babies eat every hour!"
