I don't think there is a way to prevent him from getting defensive, but you should still do it.

You may be wondering why your teammate has been taking credit for your work lately. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to address this kind of issue without him getting defensive. However, it's important that you try to communicate with him about the situation. It really is unfair what he's doing to you.

You might say something like, "I've noticed that you've been taking credit for my work lately. I want to make sure that you're aware that I'm not okay with this. I'd appreciate if you would stop doing this." By communicating directly with your teammate, you can hopefully resolve the situation before it becomes a bigger problem.

I've been given a lot of responsibilities, which is great. But I don't feel like any of them are being prioritized or delegated appropriately.

I understand that time to market is important in consumer product goods, but being constantly behind schedule and rushing everything is terrible for the team's morale.
