How about husband has just had a baby too, and understands that you'll both be working very hard to keep baby healthy and happy, and realising that he's not the priority for a wee while?

If my DH was so precious he needed a 'picnic on the nursery floor' hmm I'm not sure I'd be having a baby with him.

Ugh this is just grim. Like men are petulant older siblings!!!

I was told by mil that I needed to make sure I paid her pfb enough attention when the baby comes otherwise he will probably cheat on me.

If you really loved him you would make sure he didn't feel neglected in the delivery room by wanking him off between contractions.

You have GOT to be kidding me?! hmm

Never underestimate the power of compliments! Give your husband plenty of kudos for all that he is doing to help you in your recovery and in taking care of the new little one. Plus, positive reinforcement goes a long way in making sure he continues these efforts!"

Mmm I wonder what positive reinforcement the mother gets to ensure she continues her efforts?
Oh that's right, default parent, if she doesn't do it, it's neglect.

PineapplePunch that's awful! What did you reply?

This is horrendous

StealthPolarBear Sun 05-Feb-17 13:20:58

Pp did you ask why she thought her pfb was such a loser

MilkTwoSugarsThanks Sun 05-Feb-17 13:24:14

Well I kind of agree with the first two points in a way...

Not so much the rest though!

BertieBotts Sun 05-Feb-17 13:25:09

This is peak handmaiden. Isn't it?

NeverEverAnythingEver Sun 05-Feb-17 13:29:46

FoxAndTheBound I nearly spit out my coffee at your post ... grin

Celticlassie Sun 05-Feb-17 13:32:26

I see Davina McCall's hand in this.

BertieBotts Sun 05-Feb-17 13:33:46

But the first two aren't actually tips are they? Who needs to be told to let their husband make decisions about the baby? And having it clarified as "Let him choose an outfit!" is even worse. Don't worry, you don't have to let him make any real decisions, his poor little man-bran couldn't cope with that, but letting him choose the outfit is harmless and will make him feel included.

Oh god I clicked through to the 'sex and co sleeping' article.

"Ask him... to help figure out something for dinner"

He can make the whole fucking dinner himself if I've just given birth tbh

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sun 05-Feb-17 13:50:31

Ugh, pass me the fucking sick bucket. If a man is too stupid to work out he aint a priority the next few decades, then he aint mature enough to have kids.

Whoever wrote that needs to go to the 1950's.

rumblingDMexploitingbstds Sun 05-Feb-17 13:55:01

Oh dear!!! shock

I spent half an hour this morning sitting near a 1 yr old's birthday party in progress, watching several dads expertly handling toddlers and tiny babies at the same time and everyone there seemed to be having a great time. This is so insulting to parents of both sexes!

The 1950s seem to be fighting for a come back lately. I'm waiting for the article on how to look glamorous while hoovering, and how to ensure a nice dinner's on the table along with his slippers all ready when he pops home. I need a quick revision of Mona Lisa Smile....

Even if you’re having trouble keeping your eyes open...... your husband will notice the time that you took to put some emphasis back on your marriage

Yes, because if i'm struggling to keep my eyes open, the first thing I think about is how to please my husband angry

Give daddy some trust with the new baby

Eminybob Sun 05-Feb-17 13:58:36

Ffs I've not read the article but I can imagine what it says.
How the fuck in this day and age is this kind of stufff still a thing?

Tbf though I do have friends with husbands that see anything to do with child rearing as "helping" or "babysitting" and want lots of praise when they change a fucking nappy!
And I know at least one who did run off and do the dirty on his wife while she was pregnant with their second born as he wasn't being paid enough attention.

None of those things are for the woman to try and prevent though, although they should have chosen the father of thier children more carefully.

Women can be their own worst enemies sometimes, but even so, it's hard to believe a woman with a brain in 2017 has written this.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Sun 05-Feb-17 14:00:23

WTAF is 'Mommying'?

Celticlassie Sun 05-Feb-17 14:20:28

It's the sex one that gets me. 'Even before the 6 week postpartum go-ahead...' 6 WEEKS?!
