Baby Makes Three

on Sep 25, 2015 @ 07:12 pm

A lot of you do not do this but here goes.... How many men after baby arrives are feeling left out etc? A baby is a cherished wonderful thing but not the only one in life deserving your love and companionship. I have known and seen women push hubby aside for baby; some have divorced (although that may not be the only reason) It's a transformation to become a mommy, but also to become a daddy. Most men are included though

I don't have kids but I suppose if I had one the child would be my priority for at least a little bit

kids do make a difference in my family BUT such an incredible blessing
just remember when baby goes to sleep, make time for one another :)

As a mommy and daddy it's a huge adjustment, not only time commitment wise, but also emotionally and to top it off you are BOTH incredibly sleep deprived. And if it's your first, you're likely a bit terrified and floundering. In my case, I was nursing and obviously had to do all feeds, including night feeds. Hubby was working and finishing university, so I tried to let him sleep as much as possible at night, though he'd frequently change the night time diapers for me(which was very appreciated). Did we both lose ourselves to baby a bit - yes. Of course. with the first, it was more stressful and we disconnected a bit, but ultimately regained all ground. With the second, we were older and more experienced as there's quite an age gap between our kids. We understood the sacrifices each was making and stayed connected in various ways, despite being exhausted. :). It's a massive, eye opening change for mom AND dad. Both need patience with the other and to work as a team. And support one another. A baby is a blessing, but sometimes when you're sleep deprived and in survival mode, it's easy to forget that.

sometimes women are put aside by their hubbies because of a baby too ;-)
