Am I going crazy?
My son is only 7weeks old, and I am already wanting to cry. In the past three days I have had only a total of 7hours of sleep. Not 7hours each day, 7 hours total in three days. I am so exhausted. My son doesn't want to sleep in his crib, he doesn't co-sleep, he will fall asleep in his swing, then I transfer him into his crib he would scream. he stopped crying when I placed him on my chest, then I nursed him and he fell asleep. So I would put him in his crib, a few minutes later he would cry and cry. I wait at least 2mins to see if he just falls asleep, but nope. I am so emotionally exhausted. I am a single mom. It is so hard to do this alone. I don't get a moment to just be alone. My body wants to give up, but my mind and heart obviously don't. this is my son , I love him. I know he is just a baby, but idk what I am doing wrong. I ask myself why god let me be a mom, why he chose me? Did he really think I would be a good mom, or is this a test. IDK . I love my son so much that id give my life for him, I am a single mom. I didn't ask to be a single mom. His father left me when I found out I was pregnant and said Carter wasn't his. And he still hasn't seen Carter or spoken to me. I am stressed out to the max. I hate when people say sleep when he sleeps. NO, how can I get anything done ????? I am so frustrated and tired. And to add to it, I am sick with a cold. Sinus headache, sore throat, stuffy nose. I cant seem to catch a break. Am I going crazy ? what is wrong with me?
Or as long as he is secure in his swing let him sleep in it. At least for a nap. Just put the swing close to you so you feel more secure about it. I know a few moms who just let their kids sleep in them.
