My DF had 12 weeks off work when DS was born and just 2 weeks when we had DD 3 months ago. It was hard but we got through it. I found it easier this time when DF went back to work because I wasn't so lost like I was with my first born. We quickly got into our own little routine.
Things that I found helped was to make sure the older child had a snack and drink bottle filled when I sat down to feed, don't make big plans and just go with the flow. If all that gets done some days is feeding the kids well so be it. Don't put pressure on yourself.
Accept any help from friends and family and fingers crossed you get a good sleeper this time!
