: I see that you are about the only man here :) so I have a daddy ? for you ANYONE is welcome to help me out on this too

: OK Tameryn is 10 months old, the problem im havin is her daddy dont fix bottles, bathe her, change diapers.. he will play with her, sing to her and put her to sleep at night AFTER i bathe her, fix her a bottle and change her diaper :S I have asked him about these thing and he tells me that with her being a little girl and he has HUGh hands she is scared of hurting her and dont feel confortable changingher diapers... as far as the bottle she is scared that he will not fix them right OR they will b too hot or too cold... he is a GREAT dad to her dont get me wrong at all, he works long hard hours, but it wold b nice for him to do some of the things for every now and then...

: BTW if im NOT home and Tameryn is with him he WILL do the diaper thing and the bottle is juice and not formula i can deal with that

: Any idea?

I think he knows you will give in so he doesn't even make an effort to get things done. Maybe you should leave him alone with the baby more often, go out a few nights a week with friends and let daddy have his turn. If you are always there, why is he going to bother doing anything? He knows you can get it done on your own!
