Re: Exhausted and very frustrated
I'm so sorry you got such a rough start. That makes establishing a nursing relationship so much harder. Keep in mind most of us are here because we did not get 'normal' starts or had difficulties for one reason or another. We're just trying to figure out how best to help you reach your goals, whatever they are. If you let us know what they are we can help better. I'm going to go look for a couple of mamas who had preemies and send them to talk to you, since it's not something I have any experience dealing with.

I'm guessing you don't have anyone that can come help you out with the new baby or they'd already be there, but if you do have anyone you could ask, call them now. This is not the time to feel like you shouldn't bother people. Did you make any arrangements with them prior to the baby's birth regarding what was going to happen when baby was born? Can you talk to your professors and delay some of your assignments for school?
It's okay to be frustrated. We're here to help. Let's work together.
