Ummmmm..... I know everyone is joking about placating wives and what not. So all in good fun, rock on.
However, if you are in the doghouse because of some middle of the night slackness, be sure you deserve the punishemnt.
Who was supposed to get up? etc?
I'm saying, did you divvy up the jobs during the night BEFORE you went to sleep? First feeding, second feeding, cuddling back to sleep, etc. If so, then if you slacked, you owe big time. But if you are winging it, as so many new parents do, then you owe nothing.
My wife and I devised a system where I handled all the issues before 1 Am, then she handled everything after 1 am. That worked for us and we each got solid sleep for at least one half the night.
Just saying you might need to stake out some boundries or you might become a whipping boy. Sleep is sleep. Gold comes and goes. But sleep is king.
