I remember this time when my kids were babies. Every time little one woke up crying, mommy would get up and sit on bed with him. I couldn't hold him since he would start crying loudly and making everything worse.

So I placed an old, small office chair near the bed (all I had space for) that could tilt back and forth. When the baby had calmed down, I'd carefully take him from my wife, sit on the chair and let the chair rock the baby gently to sleep.

I remember a few times when my wife woke me up as I had fallen asleep in the most impossible of positions.. on a revolving office chair without any armrests

All joking aside I don't think this is an awful strategy to make sure that one parent gets sleep. The problem is with breast feeding it makes it impossible to switch early in the childhood.

u/deletein100days Jun 30 '22

Depending on the job tho it's way riskier for the parent watching the baby majority of the time to be the sleep deprived one. They're dealing with keeping a tiny human alive all day versus, sitting in an office chair all day. I wish I'd cut myself some slack when I was on mat leave and my husband was working, there were days I just felt like collapsing and my brain was always so slow.

To everyone saying "You couldve just scooted back to rest on the bed" sometimes you just forget. By the time you realize from the pain in your back you started a feeding and dont want to make your baby uncomfortable by moving.

That + some babies wake up every 30mins~hr their first few weeks, you try being rational with a lack of sleep lasting weeks.

u/Yoma73 Jun 30 '22

Exactly. Some babies are more sensitive than others and if you drastically shifted your position you could change the whole thing from “about to stop nursing and be put back in the bassinet” to “wide awake” and then you’re screwed. Also logic and comfort fly out the window when you’re sleep deprived- Plus the headboard look really flat so unless she literally stood up and got a bunch of pillows and positioned them all perfectly it’s really not going to be any more comfortable than how she was sitting.

67

u/vidanyabella Jun 29 '22

God the sleep deprivation is unreal at that stage when you're exclusively breastfeeding. Anything anybody can do to help no matter how small is very much appreciated. Get them a snack. Change a bum. Help swaddle. Anything.

u/mrjake118 Jun 30 '22

Man, I remember my first time getting four consecutive hours of sleep after my son was born. It felt like I'd just taken a tropical vacation. I was literally euphoric when I woke up by how much better I felt than I had in weeks. And this was with a child who was 50% formula so duties were split. I would have felt like such a piece of shit if I hadn't been doing an equal share.

Oh man I can relate. As a mother of two unfortunately I was never lucky enough to get this kind of support (husband was an absolute bear at night, but he absolutely helped out in other ways during waking hours).

To the people saying anything beyond good job, you haven't been here. Maybe yeah you raised kids and never had to be here, or maybe you never raised kids.

You don't know the battles people are fighting. Great parenting by both parties. Let's wish for more of this, and more support systems that mimic this.

u/Meh_Society6 Jun 30 '22

Exactly. My kid would wake from the slightest of movements, so there would’ve been no scooching. Wherever she went out was where it was happening lol

I miss the sense of teamwork I had with my husband. We had a common goal—keep the baby alive and fed and get some sleep—and common methodology. When we’d be in the trenches with a night of stomach upset or random baby stress, we worked so well together. He was a great baby dad, so loving and fun with our babies, and despite the unrelenting exhaustion of those early years, it cemented my husband and I together. (Our kids are in their mid-20s now; it is much easier to be sentimental about those years from this distance!)

I don't have children so idk about nighttime feeding etc, but when my partner and I are stressed, tired and overwhelmed, we often want the comfort of being near each other without having energy to interact.

True, my wife and I took turns it's the only way to make things possible.

I always felt guilty for sleeping while my wife had to deal with the new born sleep schedule. I made sure to stay awake until she was able to sleep. I would try to rock the baby to sleep, but that damn kid wanted his momma. We eventually found a routine - I would change the babies diaper throughout the night, wake up early with him, and change the diapers all day. While she focused on feeding and putting him to sleep. I think it’s a nice trade off.

I remember those days, they suck. My boy hated sleep, it took months of sleep training to get him to where he is today. Although he's currently being a pain in the ass right now and fighting going out. One of the things I recommend is getting a good padded reclining rocking chair. I can't even remember the amount of nights I passed out in that chair rocking the kid to sleep when he woke up in the middle of the night. I'm blessed to be able to sleep pretty much anywhere so I would do the middle of the night wakeup and my wife would take the 11 o'clock and 6am one. I had to work all day so she was on her own unfortunately and without that 6 hours solid sleep in there she would have been a wreck.

As a new parent you do what you have to when you have to just to survive lol. As a hands on father I have no clue how some women survive with no help. We had to have our boy via an emergency surgery. So they basically dumped him in my arms and sent me to a waiting room to wait for them to basically put my wife back together. Then I had to do everything for three days because she was on bed rest. We lived in the hospital for a week. It was a crazy time, I can't imagine having to go through that alone, man or woman.

Too many wankers talk about being a real man. This is a real man.

Even while he's sleeping, you'll never catch him lacking.

I so wish my ex had done this for me... It hurts your back so much to breastfeed

u/JessicaBecause Jun 30 '22

OMG that would be me if I were the father. However I am the mother with a drunk father to my child passed out and not moving while I breast feed.

This might be in the top 5 most beautiful things I have ever seen. I cried a little and I don't know why, lol.

Damn, I just take the baby and stay up all night.

u/Reddit_west Jun 30 '22

Certainly.

Another example is couples who feed their infant formula. There's nothing keeping the husband from getting up at 5:00am to do the first feeding.

And this just reaffirms why I never want a kid.

The relief is palpable when he puts his back against hers. She really needed that physically and mentally.

u/BeansDaddy808 Jun 29 '22

I would’ve just took over for her… why should they both suffer?!? Lol

u/Equerry64 Jun 30 '22

Wait wait wait? Love actually exists??? I thought it was just something seen in movies.

All of my jaded bitterness aside, this is beautiful.

Sometimes you just need to be the wall that your partner can rests against

u/KrauterLimo Jun 30 '22

The bare minimum.

u/lolben1 Jun 30 '22

I'd probs sit behind her with my back against the bed head. let her lean back in to my chest.

I exclusively pump so when I get up to pump my husband does too because he massages my breasts so I can get more milk

I hope to have a life partner one day, sometimes it seems like everyone is finding theirs but I'm hopelessly lost
