our ds is 1 and hes a handful, I know this, but dh always moans when he has had to look after him or had him in the sling for one of his naps (not ideal I know but believe me its the best thing for him) it's 'oh my back hurts' 'oh i have such a headache' 'can you hear my knees creaking?' 'ow my elbow just locked'.....etc
the thing is, I've done this for over a year, and yes my body hurts, but I have not complained the whole time.
and I just feel like he likes to make me feel guilty about making him look after our ds while I mn relax!

Oh, tell him to get a grip. Or some painkillers. Or both.

Dh has - finally - managed to take both our dc's out on his own. Dd is nearly 8 months old. I didn't get the option not to do it - I just had to get on with it. It really irritates me when he witters on about how hard it is with both of them!

Still, at least your dh does do stuff - just zone out the whinging! wink

i must admit he is very good with ds, and around the ouse, he does the washing and ironing.
hes a sensitive sole so if i told he to get a grip it would upset and hurt his feelings, but i think i will try the get some pain killers smile

he has cp, we find he has spasms if put down in his cot to sleep. no idea why, neither has consultant. he doesn't have them at any other time just when hes in his cot.

I thought blush

I am totally ignorant about this and have nothing of substance to offer.

I apologise for the uninformed judgement blush
