Does this ever get faster or easier? DS is 6 weeks and I feel like I've done nothing but sit on a couch! He's constantly at the breast, which is driving me nuts. He doesn't stay satisfied for more than 10 or 15 minutes, if that. It's making me wonder if this is working or if I just need to give it up. DD is showing her frustration in temper tantrums and constant whining (new for her, though she is about that age ... yikes!).
I feel like I've got very little support, too. I get nothing but downer comments from my mother: "You're STILL feeding him?! Just give him a bottle and take a break! It worked for your daughter." or "He's hungry again?! Are you sure he's getting enough?" or my favorite "It's not a competition, you know. They don't give medals for making a martyr out of yourself." Thanks for the confidence boost.
Meanwhile, my garden has dried up, no fruits or veggies this year. My house looks like it's been through a natural disaster: toys are everywhere, dishes piled in the sink, and the floors haven't been vacuumed in weeks. DH is vocally supportive, but between work and school he's out of energy. I hardly ever see him.
I'm sorry this is so long. Really need to vent. Both kids are crying and I want to join them. I'm starting to hate this.
