Re: Grumpy almost 2 week old
This will pass, mama. Just like everything else. But I have to say that it chills my blood to think about the level of exhaustion you must be experiencing. Can you get help from a babysitter or family member? If you could nap just for a couple of hours with the baby while someone else took care of the toddler... I am sure you'd rebound a lot!
Don't worry about "neglecting" your older child. This is very temporary and your older child won't remember it. And the gift of a sibling is worth the price of a temporarily distracted and overwhelmed mama.
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!"
