Breastfeeding Mom

Hi my son is 8 weeks today. And so far been great. Bt its hard to do any House cleaning or cooking... Once he is fed n put him down for a nap. .nt even a 10 mins hes awake...i wrap him n his blanket...bt he doesn't stay asleep. I let him cry to calm himself bt i give in n pick him up....den i get frustrated wen he does it again....i knw im suppose to b by him always jt im by myself all day....my bf works n he doesn't like to come home to a messy home....i ask for help from family bt none live near us....so its hard to get anything done....

Re: Breastfeeding Mom

  • Don't get frustrated, this is very normal. Babies need to be held and comforted a lot at this stage. Maybe try wearing him to see it helps you get some things done. Otherwise tell your boyfriend to shove it if he complains about a messy house - newborns are hard and take up a ton of time.

  • Yes, baby wearing will help. Other than that, let the bf cry it out, not the baby. Hes not this small forever and the house will eventually get cleaned.
