My 6mos old DS does not sleep for more than 2hrs at a time. The first 4 mos when I was at home I was tired but nothing like this. Even in the early weeks when DS was only sleeping 45min at a time around the clock. I didn't have to think about anything other than taking care of baby. Now I have to get up, get dressed and ready for work, drive there (1hr each way), be sharp and do my job effectively. I have to use other parts of my brain; not just "baby brain". I am not succeeding at this. I'm in survival mode - just doing what I have to in order to get by. The reason I went back to work was so I could finish my PhD. That isn't happening. I cannot find time to write a grocery list let alone a dissertation!
How are you other working moms doing it?
