My husband works shifts switching between day and night, and he has been off for the past 11 weeks. I went back to work six weeks ago and have been completely exhausted at the end of the day. Feeding my daughter whenever we are home, supplementing due to sucking issues and pumping at least three additional times a day to keep up supply for bottles at school and to supplement at home is leaving absouloutly running on fumes. My wonderful husband has picked up the slack the last six weeks. He has done all the cooking the majority of the cleaning, laundry, entertaining our two year old and staying up a little later just in case the baby wakes up and needs and extra feeding.
All these wonderful things come to an end when he goes back to work. I am a basket case trying to figure out how to run my home with out him. I am looking for suggestions on how to keep my breastfeeding realationship with my youngest relaxing while still keeping my household running smoothly.
My last question is really a parenting question. How do I give my two year old the positive attention she needs while breastfeeding cooking dinner, working and doing all those other things that have to be done. I appreciate any and all suggestions.
