Having a baby completely changes your life. And while you function on adrenaline learning to feed, clean, live and love your baby, the dishes pile up, dust collects and cleaning the house generally becomes an afterthought (blame it on the lack of sleep).
What could make it worse is if your husband doesn’t think he needs to chip in with household chores such as ironing clothes, washing dishes and cleaning windows. He assumes this is your domain (read: responsibility), so he leaves it all up to you.
Let’s not even go into how sexist that is, but if you don’t have domestic help, and you’re already exhausted with the baby, it’s time to get him to do his part. It’s important to get his help to tackle those necessary but tedious tasks at home. Learn how you can speak your mind – tactfully.
