I have a 2yo daughter and 5 week old newborn who is nursing. I am really starting to feel an overwhelming sense of anxiety and fatigue with nursing on demand and pumping for night bottles (my situation is that I'm separated from my lo for 5-6 hours each night).
I keep reading all these articles about how rewarding the breastfeeding relationship is, and of course I know the benefits for my lo, but honestly, I am really not enjoying it right now.
I get so frustrated when he cries and pulls off my breast, fusses for his fussy period and other times when I can't figure out what is wrong. I think it is the added stress of a 2 year old literally hanging on me and demanding my attention all the time.
I know everyone tells me to "not worry about the house!"--but, I'm the one stuck here all day long with the clutter and dirty dishes!
When does it start to get better?
