Starting a family sounds very cute but it can be very exhausting, especially when a baby is going through a weird sleep pattern. The exhaustion comes to a level where you might start to have a toll on your health. For women who have been handling kids and working together, it becomes next to impossible to find some peace but a supportive partner plays a vital role in the same. A partner who is constantly there for you emotionally and physically brings a lot of difference the responsibilities get divided giving both parents personal space. But in contradiction, a Redditor asked for his internet peers’ advice wondering if he was in the wrong for requesting a "morning off" from taking care of their baby on weekends.

The husband started off by saying "My wife and I have a six-month-old baby girl. She's mostly a SAHM, she works two half days a week and her sister watches the baby. I work full-time and go to school one day a week. We've always had an arrangement where she takes care of the household duties (cooking, cleaning, and now baby care) while I happily support her monetarily. Honestly, we are both living our dream life and my wife does an absolutely spectacular job taking care of me and our little one."
