    Sleeping on the floor in the nursery rather than wake the newborn by wheeling him into my room. It was a bad day for sleep today. Boat rocking not.

    Oh Hun, don't subject yourself to sleeping on the floor that is not going to help you out at all. Just have bubs in with you. Keep a few nappies, some wipes, cream and a towel. Have DS right next to, feed him when he needs change him on your lap, cuddles to settle and back in his bed. I'm doing this and my dp gets DS out of his bassinet hands to me for feed and change I settle then DP puts DS back in his bassinet

    I normally do that. Yesterday was a particularly bad day in that he was impossible to settle and always sleeping very lightly, when it came time for me to go to bed he was in such a light sleep I didn't want to wake him by wheeling him out, as soon as he woke for feeding I moved to the bedroom. DH has to get up at 4am for work so it's my job to be baby mamma for now, he takes over when he gets home until his bedtime. We used to work night and morning shift.

    So glad it's not happening all time but it would be nice if your DP helps you out during the night. I love that mine does and he gets up at 530 for work and is on the tools all day til 5pm each day as he's a builder running 2 crews of guys behind him.

    over it. ds is super grizzly and keeps skipping naps. I'm really tired and just want me time. I hate feeling resentful towards a baby for making me feel like I never get time to do stuff just for me.

    I am so freaking angry with my parents. After yesterday's crap with my mum that she is now denying, me propping up their finances so they weren't out of pocket having to come to my place to look after DS and the long drive to take me to ECT each time from them crying poor (despite them knowing full well I am behind in rent/bills and barely affording food along with desperately needing to replace my car), as kinship carers DHS has been paying them more than enough to cover their expenses plus extra.

    I think I'm bordering on starting to hate them, a feeling I don't want to have about anyone let alone my parents
