How Do I Get My Wife To Stay Awake??

She just had our baby like 2 days ago and all she really seems to be doing is sleeping and taking care of her. It's so boring cuz she pays no attention to me anymore. All i can really do for her is change diapers(which im never doing cuz its nasty) cuz she breastfeeds so there goes feeding the baby.

    Breastfed babies poop doesn't stink- so c'mon and step on up to the plate. Breastfeeding itself can wear a woman out and the fact that she just 2 days ago went through labor and delivery of your child is reason enough for her to sleep. I bet if you help her out more she will pay you some attention. A new baby is alot of work.. especially if you aren't helping her out... How could she pay any attention to you if she is using all of her energy on taking care of the baby WITHOUT HELP??!!

    Welcome to daddyhood. Your wife is exhausted. she just had a baby. You should be paying attention to her right now and helping her get back on her feet. Ask your wife to pump breastmilk into a bottle so you can get up in the middle of the night and help with the feeding. Get a cloths pin for your nose and change the diaper, nasty or not you are daddy now and spend sometime with that baby and let mama get some sleep and then maybe she will stay awake. Good luck, be supportive and enjoy that beautiful bundle you have...

    It probably would help her to change the baby's diaper. Women love it when you do that. Why don't you try taking the baby for a walk if she naps? She might be tired from having the baby. Give her a break for awhile. The baby needs her attention right now. Maybe you can use this time to go out with some friends you haven't seen in awhile or watch a movie next to her while she sleeps. I always love when I start to wake up and hubby is right next to me.

    Get over yourself!!!! Your wife just pushed out a baby and now what??? YOu expect her to run a marathon??? Having a baby is hard work and I'm sure she is extremely exhausted!!!

    What you can do for your wife is clean the house, do laundry, cook, etc. She needs help around the house, because all she can do right now is take care of that baby.

    Stop being so selfish.

    Wow, someone needs to grow up? Do you not know that your child is your wife's life now and shes exchuasted from giving birth and taking care of a new baby. What she needs is for you to grow up and stop being so damn selfish.

    Um...she just squeezed a watermelon through her legs...she's tired, give her a break. Were you there for labor? Do you have any clue how tiring that is? Plus her hormones are changing right now. You don't sound mature enough and way to selfish to be a father...you must be quite young.

    Who the hell do you think you are? I just had a baby four months ago and it took me about three weeks to feel somewhat normal again. They don't call it labour for nothing!!!!! This is your baby too, so there is nothing wrong with you changing the diaper. GROW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I imagine you are a troll - because if she had the baby 2 days ago, she is either still in the hospital or JUST got home from the hospital. I smell a fake.
