Got an Answer?
Did I write this in the midst of my sleep deprivation because I just read my life!
I feel you. Hugs to you. We got this xx
Definitely not alone xx you will get through this. My 2nd was awful - never slept, woke 100 times a night, ridiculously attached to me and wouldnt let her dad near her when she woke at night. Shes almost 11 now and a sweet, confident, funny, cruzy kid whom i have to wake up almost every day coz she loves her sleep and "isnt a morning person". Im still scarred for life from what she did to me in the first 3 years of her life! Lucky she was number 2 coz she would have been an only child! Just remember this bad phase will pass, you WILL get to sleep again and that will make everything easier to deal with xx
My two are the same, both still co sleep as they want to be close by and would wake 100s of times during the night to feel mum or dad close. My hubby won’t get up to no 2 so I’ve felt exactly the same as you.. resentful and unhappy.. down and depressed. But it does get better. There IS light at the end of the tunnel and you will get there. Try not to let it get you down and affect your marriage too much.. I did that and it almost ruined mine.
Goodluck and remember, if you want to co sleep to get some sleep, do it and don’t let anyone judge you for it! Xx
Have you tried co sleeping? Might help the 1yo settle and sleep better, and therefore you get more sleep too. I understand it's not for everyone though ☺ Don't worry about the housework - just do the bare minimum to get by. Things will get better!
Why isn’t your husband helping? Have you spoken to him about how you’re feeling? If you’re at breaking point, he needs to step up pronto!
Can you put your child in day care for a one off and catch up x
