I can't seem to balance my baby and my husbands needs. It seems like since we got home, my husband and I have done nothing but fight. How do you keep it "fresh" with your significant others? I need all the advice I can get! i AM SO TIRED OF FIGHTING over nothing at all. I don't know if we fight because we don't get to spend as much time together now or because of the stress and lack of sleep from the baby.
How old is your baby? My husband and I were the same way! Our little boy will be 2 months tomorrow!! It's just such a huge adjustment for everybody!! It just didn't seem fair that a day after we came home he had to go back to work! Which left me all alone with the baby!! (He's our first baby too!!) I think sometimes you just need a break from it all and that just tends to make you fight with each other! I just recently let my mom keep the baby so we could go out to eat with my brother and sister in law!! It really helped us both being able to have time together without the baby!! :) Made us feel like we were dating again! LOL! My problem too is I'm so tired of staying in the house all week and needed to get out! So we took a shopping trip over the weekend just the 3 of us!! It was a hour and a half drive!! But it was so worth it! So maybe try going out without the baby or just get away for the day!!
They're right! Having a new baby is a real adjustment for everyone. Talk to your partner and let him know how you feel. Talk about things that you need and ask him what things he would like you to do. There are many fears when you have a child and sometimes talking about them makes it easier. Just keep the communication open and when the baby is bigger, make it a priority to go on "dates" with your partner. It will get better if you keep trying.
My husband and are were the same way. I would get upset about the littlest things. and he would be irritated as well. We have twins so theres never any down time to just relax lol He works 330 to midnight monday thru friday and 11 to 730 saturdays so we never see each other. but through it all we make time for each other for example "dates" are always fun. Or just take time to have talks bout anything your day or his. At night while the babies are asleep take a shower together, share how you feel, take a nap together. Theres lots of littles things that can fix this problem :) key word being "the little things." ;)
Elle-great suggestions. I love your attitude and determination to make the little moments count. :-)
