Sleep deprived with new born and two other kids
How did you ladies get through the early weeks of having a new baby and being sleep deprived?!
sleep when your baby sleeps, don't regret any help that is offered.
It's so hard as a mom to sleep during the day when you have so much other stuff you have to take care of including little people! Lol .
I was always behind on dishes and laundry. Are your older kids old enough to behave with a movie so you can at least lay down and rest while baby sleeps? I did LOTS of crock pot meals for supper and big batches so we could do leftovers.
I was a complete zombie the first few weeks. I was on pain killers and Benadryl every few hours plus the baby never slept more than 30 minutes at a time, he was always eating the first two months...some of the weeks I honestly don't even remember. Lol
Amy I agree with you! I barely remember yesterday lmao. And it's getting to the point where I feel exhausted and my tummy gets upset! Thank goodness the MIL is doing thanksgiving this year!
wow good question thnx
It is very hard because the baby and the other child usually aren't asleep at the same time. Try to get a spouse,bf, family member etc to help so u can sleep.
It can be so very hard at times I hardly remember the first couple of months living like a zombie (if it makes any sense lol) I ultimately resorted to falling asleep when we had people over to see the baby and me..by the time I would wake up someone would be playing with baby and asking what I wanted to eat,,after that little episode I kind of got used to it
Oh yes but it gets better in time ...hang in there mommy
