My Husband Wouldn’t Watch Our Newborn To Let Me Shower, So I Came Up With a Plan To Teach Him a Lesson

In the whirlwind of early parenthood, a mother shared her frustration on Reddit. Just two weeks postpartum, she found herself with no time alone. “I’ve showered once by myself since having her,” she lamented, her baby always needing her close. Her husband, however, continued his long showers, oblivious to her struggles. When he brought the crying baby to her, it sparked conflict.

Desperate for self-care, the mother sought help from her own mother. Yet, her husband’s reaction surprised her. He was upset she hadn’t asked him instead. Frustrated, she emphasized her need for self-care and support. The Reddit community rallied, suggesting practical solutions and critiquing the husband’s lack of empathy.

Commenters shared their own experiences, offering advice and solidarity. They highlighted the importance of communication and equitable parenting. One suggested a firm conversation, setting boundaries for uninterrupted alone time. Another shared how they redistributed parenting responsibilities, fostering a more balanced dynamic.

Ultimately, the discussion centered on fostering understanding and empathy between partners. By allocating responsibilities and having open conversations, couples can navigate the challenges of early parenthood together. As one commenter shared, it’s about becoming equal partners in parenting.

In response to the husband’s lack of empathy, one commenter challenged his logic. They questioned why he didn’t take the baby during his own long showers if they were so soothing. Others suggested practical solutions like locking the door during showers or having a serious conversation about respecting boundaries. The consensus was clear: communication and shared responsibilities are key to a harmonious parenting journey.
