Husband paternity leave ended

Doesnt it sucks that husbands only get 10 days of paternity leave ? Theyre equally important as the mother. Esp when the mother has gone thru csect and unable to function and walk for few weeks. My husband’s paternity leave just ended and i can’t help but to keep crying. Aside from i need help with the baby, I also miss him being home the whole day 😔☹️ Really hope soon i’ll adapt and get used to it. Altho Im staying with my MIL, it’s a different kind of help. #firsttimemom

Yups. My hubs took 5 day AL to look after me after I was discharged from csec (baby still in hospital) When baby was discharged, we got the confinement nanny to come, but the hubs had to go back to work the following day already. And yes, even though I had my CN, I was still very sad that my husband had to return to work. But still, I'm thankful that he was there for that 1 week when I could hardly move. I think having a CN helps a lot. Perhaps consider hiring one.
