Hi, so sorry to hear how your husband is feeling, I presume his reaction is out of character? If so, he probably is depressed. Do you think he could be overwhelmed by the responsibility and also at how much he loves his little baby? His reaction maybe a defence mechanisim to protect himself from these feelings? He could also be doubting his skills as a dad, so one way to deal with it is to shut off? Men can be surprisingly complicated! I also wonder what his relationship is like with his parents?
I didn't see the programme, but have you looked at their website? Maybe there is some more info on there for you.
Hope it all works out for you x
