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?

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.

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

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.
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.

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.
