Hi I’m new to the site. Really am so low. I’m 40 and I have 3 older children and an 11 week old baby. I’m on my own and have no support at all. I’ve got to 11 weeks but so tired and the thowt of never having a break is making me feel even worse. I can’t see how things are gonna get better. I don’t no what to do and have no one to turn to.
Thankyou for taking time to reply. The eldest 3 go to there dad’s on a sat night, there 16 and twins at 14years, they try there best with baby but he’s so demanding, he’s not sleeping threw day 10mins and then wide awake so I don’t catch up on sleep during day (yet), hes such an alert baby as the health v says. Hes awake every 3hours during night aswell, im bottle feeding. babys dad doesn’t want to no, feel very let down but it was an abusive relationship mentaly and if babies dad can’t see me as well he doesn’t want to no. Hopefully things will change soon many thanks x
I’m glad to see you are chatting with others in the forum. It can be a useful way to combat the isolation. Hopefully you will make some sound connections with other parents. I will be sending you a personal message with some signposting options for you.
I know that feeling too well when you are too tired of listening to crying and making stop any noising along to the baby so make the baby comforable and realize the Footie Pajamas is making him way to understand so I realize that its making sense to me as well as baby.
