She doesnt sleep at all in the day and might get 8 hours of broken sleep a night. She also now wakes for 3 hours from 2am to 5am.
She wants the breast ALL the time. Sometimes I let her comfort suck in desperation. She just licks and plays with the nipple usually but I am so confused as to when she is really hungry or not as I can't even hold her without her trying to latch on.
I am out of ideas, she is overtired and unhappy. I am exhausted and unhappy. Considering weaning her off tthe breast as all my formula friends seem happy and their babies are also happier. Mine just cries all the time, never wakes up smiling or happy.
DH is not supportive of giving up bf. He wants me to try up to 6 months but at only 7 weeks I am at my wits end. I will persist to 3 months but I don't know how to have any sort out of life. I cant even make lunch during the day and am losing heaps of weight, my house is a pig sty and am too embarrassed to have people over.
I dont know if I will get answers here but I needed to vent. Motherhood is sooo much harder than I ever imagined.
