To just want to get away for a bit

I can't work out if it is or isn't unreasonable.

I just feel really squashed and compressed by DH at the moment and I want some space for a few days. Not in a LTB way, just in a "let me clear my head" way.

WIBU to take the baby and go somewhere for a bit?

You haven't said why and so I am assuming it is related to his behaviour. In which case just explain and go or things will only get worse.

I just feel smothered, like I can't do anything - I don't know what I mean, don't think he'd cope with the children alone though.

But I just want to be anywhere but here.

But why - honestly it will probably make a difference. Are you exhausted, do you have family nearby?

No, no family. I don't feel particularly tired, just smothered. I just really want to be somewhere different and get to know my baby myself and I know I'm not really being clear but I don't feel clear in my feelings.

Smothered how? By his behaviour? Does he control you? Ask too many questions? Depend on you too much? What?

Are you just overwhelmed by the baby and having to look after your DC too?
If you can manage to arrange it then a couple of nights away may help you to feel more in control.
Does really depend on what's happening at home though.

I just feel like I can't do anything without him being there or asking questions or demanding stuff. It's so annoying.

Have you talked to him about it? Does he even realise there's an issue?

I think he thinks he's being helpful, but he's so critical. He wants his daughter this and he wants his daughter to that.
