Lately, I just don’t feel like I have a partner in my husband.
We have a 3 mo old and a 2.5 yo. I’m out on maternity leave, so I’ve been doing all night feedings (EBF) and in the mornings get the baby ready, toddler ready and both out the door to drop toddler off to preschool.

On the weekends, I am upset that he can’t get toddler ready and breakfast so I can just sleep a little more while infant goes back to sleep. Husband is still sleeping.
