Re: Breastfeeding is exhausting! Need to sleep!
Mama, if things don't improve for you soon, emotionally, you might want to consider taking the medication. I also want you to know that everything your baby is doing is normal. It is normal for your baby to wake up every two hours to eat - and for that to continue for many months more. Are you cosleeping? Are you napping during the day when your baby naps? Do you have a baby carrier that you can carry the baby in while you get some things done around the house? My heart goes out to you. It must be very hard to be on your own with an infant, especially the first time you become a mother. It was hard for me and I have my husbands help. I didn't do bottles at night however - side-laying nursing while cosleeping was a lifesaver!!
