Re: How can I continue to live like this?
I don't know how long you can continue to live like you are, but I know how long I did it. 3 months. It took 3 months before I could get my baby off supplements and I could stop pumping every 2-3 hours round the clock.
Please don't fret about "missing" your baby's infancy. He's not going to remember this, and if you have to "miss" a part of babyhood, this is the part to miss.
You're really not alone. Even the mommies who have an easy trip through new motherhood are skipping showers and haircuts and toothbrushing, and their houses are a wreck even though they never leave them.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
