Foolish Childless Brother Mansplains Childcare to Sister

Living with a child can be a joyous experience, but it can also be incredibly challenging. The constant crying, lack of sleep, and never-ending demands can take a toll on even the most patient and understanding individuals.

This story follows a young man struggling to cope with his sister’s newborn.

Childless Brother Mansplains Childcare

Meet OP, a 23-year-old man who recently moved back in with his family in their childhood home. His sister, who co-owns the house with their mom, just had her first baby two weeks ago.

A New Star Is Born

The baby seems to cry and scream all the time, and according to his sister, the baby has colic. It’s been several nights of uncomfortable attempts at sleep, and a lot of them end with him unable to get more than a few hours.

The baby cried non-stop for three hours straight, from 11 pm to 2 am, which meant he didn’t get any sleep, either. He was supposed to work at 7 am that day but had to call out because he was too tired to function.

Crying a River

Desperate for peace and quiet, he went to his sister’s room and asked her to get the baby to calm down. But his sister was lying on the bed with her eyes closed, seemingly oblivious to the baby’s cries.

This led to a heated exchange between them, causing his sister to cry some more, and of course, the baby cried as well. OP’s mom had to intervene and send him back to his room. Just like the good old days, eh?

Rock-a-Bye OP
