To shove his bloody flip flops up DP's arse?

7mo DD is a terrible sleeper. I try to keep night time quiet, dark, no eye contact etc.

Just tiptoed downstairs to change her. Got to the second to last step and slipped on DP's flip flops, which he has abandoned on the stairs having obviously kicked them off on his way up. Fell down the last step carrying DD and had to twist to one side to protect her, so have banged my head on the living room door frame at the bottom of the stairs and it's now pissing blood. Had to leave poopy DD shouting in the living room while I went and mopped up my head and now she won't go back to sleep as she has fully woken up. And my head hurts.

WIBU to wake DP, who is blissfully snoring away, by shoving his fecking flip flop up his arse?

What blissfully sleeping you say??

Yandbu. Wake the bugger up.

My dh would have heard me falling down the stairs and come to my aid. Yanbu go wake him!

Wake him up. If you are hurt enough to be bleeding you need an extra pair of hands.

While I second Keith's enthusiastic exhortations to wake up dp, I'd also suggest having changing stuff next to her sleeping area, so you're not trailing her up and downstairs in the small hours.

Yes wake him up! I'd be bloody fuming

Yes, wake him up. Show him what he caused by leaving stuff on the stairs. It's a wanky place to leave anything.

I would just question though why you are going downstairs to change your DD? I wouldn't. I always did it upstairs on the floor if a nighttime change was needed. Tough on anyone who didn't like that. If they'd complained they would have been given the dirty nappy to change.

It's allright, Keith, I double-posted myself. Think there's a bit of a glitch tonight. flowers

I would be murderous with rage, frankly.

That might be why she's a "terrible sleeper". ;)

DisappointedOne Tue 23-Jun-15 03:18:56

(She's a baby. She needs to connect with you for her wellbeing. The night is a long time and she's having attention withheld while she's tiny for something she's completely unable to control. sad)

That is so dangerous, wake the fucker up and get him to dbe Al with baby While you recover from your bang on the head

mojo17 Tue 23-Jun-15 04:34:57

Oops posted too soon
Wake him up to deal with baby while you recover from bang on the head
My ex was always leaving his shoes in my path, route to the toilet while I was pregnant and I was always tripping up on them
I hurt myself pretty badly one night I threw them at his sleeping head one after the other screaming at him
He didn't do it again

Nolim Tue 23-Jun-15 05:36:10

Did you wake him up? And as topeseyt said can you change it upstairs instead?

DisapointedOne what exactly do you suggest?

DorotheaHomeAlone Tue 23-Jun-15 06:46:33

Seriously unhelpful, disappiinted. Hope you're feeling better OP

Horsemad Tue 23-Jun-15 06:50:31

Ignore DisappointedOne's advice. Babies need to learn night from day and that night means sleep, so low light, no smiley playtime faces etc. Babies can get their connection time, without the play time. smile

It would be better to keep changing stuff nearby so you're not having to go downstairs.

Hope your head isn't too painful this morning. flowers

Yes, set an assault course for him to navigate in the dark, see how he likes it.

And although you weren't asking for opinions on it, I never spoke to or made eye contact with my daughter at night time and she has always been a good sleeper as understood night/day relatively early on.

youareallbonkers Tue 23-Jun-15 07:12:57

You left your baby screaming downstairs to come and post on here??

She's a bad sleeper because you do too much when she wakes up, carrying her all round the house.

LimpidPools Tue 23-Jun-15 07:20:04

No, youareallbonkers, reread the op. The Op had changed the baby etc but now she won't go back to sleep as she has fully woken up. And my head hurts.

MrsNextDoor Tue 23-Jun-15 07:22:19

Are you ok today OP shock Poor OP. flowers

diddl Tue 23-Jun-15 07:22:39

Do you need to take her downstairs to change her?

As for your husband!!!

You fell down the stairs & he didn't hear??

Why didn't you wake him up to change your daughter whilst you sorted yourself out?confused
