Daddy Baby Worries

My husband cannot settle our little girl, she normally wants to be played with so makes grunting noises, my husband has a very stressful job and likes to relax by playing on the xbox, how do I tell him that all she wants is for his undivided attention without it sounding like I am moaning at him?

How old is your baby and how often does your h try to settle her?

I'm a mum of 3 big kids and whether or not they settled as babies was a case of roulette - I would not have betted on whether baby wanted to be settled with bouncing or gentle stroking. Only 1 of them liked a sling when tiny and tbh depending on the game, you could argue that the music/sound effects are interesting or calming for babies.

Get him to watch you hoe you do it a couple of times then leave him to it.
