As new mother I breastfed so I had to get up to feed the baby but for anything else my husband got the elbow to get up. Who has the responsibility in your family?

I coslept with my kids when they were breastfeeding at night so I didn't have to get up to feed them. Now we are night weaning my husband gets up to our son if he cries in the night because if it's me he demands to be fed. Soon hopefully he'll get past that and either of us will be able to do it (though he's learning to sleep better anyway).
I do it all because my husband works and I work very little. Paid work that is.

I don't have kids, but when I was a baby my parents began but sharing duties. Then my dad started complaining too much about it, and my mum always did it.
I did most of it and didn't mind. I wasn't able to entirely breastfeed so occasionally my husband would do a feed as he liked the night stillness and to have some one on one time with the babies.
Due to my husband's selective night hearing, it was always me who got up to the kids.
Exactly what Jennifer said was the situation for our family. My husband shares the night time responsibility and almost always gets up more than I do if our kids need anything.
I do. My wife will wake up too, but she only wakes up to tell me to go take a look at who is crying.
