I could understand that jammi, but it is the fact that her dh "told" her rather than had a reasonable conversation about it, also he seems insistent keen that she and the baby will be quiet throughout.
If he had approached it differently - perhaps accepted there may be some baby noise for a start, and maybe offered to give her some time another night, that is more how it should be.
My dh has has put our dd to bed about 3 times since she was a newborn. She is 17 months. I am currently 34 weeks and wondering if he will do it when baby is here. He does work shifts so it is easiier for me to do it, but still once in a while wouldnt hurt especially as Im knackered.
