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?!

    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

          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
