Selfish tit

Today, I'm running on two hours sleep thanks to our new baby. My partner slept all night, and when I asked them to take over so I could have a nap, they ran to bed, saying that they needed to sleep. Why? Apparently, the baby noise woke them up "once or twice" and they needed the extra sleep more than me. FML

If this is your first child, you need to both sit down immediately and discuss taking turns overnight. You both need sleep. But don't make it a battle with "I slept less; I'm winning the sympathy war". You're both adults (I assume) and you need to lay out terms for taking turns. If one of you is breastfeeding, (since your genders aren't mentioned and BFing is unfortunately one side if it's a newborn and you can't pump yet) the other should put back to sleep after/wake up next. Talk about how long feeding takes and that you're up with them. Formula, take turns with that too obviously! Taking turns still counts when they're older (but under 1) and still waking at night. You're both awake during the day, you both need sleep at night.

Not true they them is also used to refer to a person of Unspecified gender

They and them refers to more than one person regardless you should run the other way now while the kid is a baby
