Awesome update!  Men can be such babies sometimes.  He probably panicked last minute when he realized he was going to have sole responsibility and curtailed freedom for a couple of weeks.  Good for you for standing up for yourself.  Glad he stepped up.

I don't feel this is a fair generalization. Yes, the OP's husband was less than supportive and cooperative, but that doesn't mean that all men are "babies."

No-one said all men are babies.

No, but "men can be such babies" implies that "being a baby" is related to gender, which it's not.

Actually, it was, "men can be such babies sometimes".

The word sometimes doesn't change a thing.  The fact that the subject of the sentence is "men" suggests that gender has something to do with being a baby.  And it doesn't.  If the sentence read "people can be such babies sometimes," that would solve the problem.
