Your first post describes me exactly. I'm also extra stressed because my dd2 has a cows milk protein allergy, won't take a bottle, won't take prescription formula so that just leaves me, the only one that can settle her by breastfeeding and having to cut out all dairy from my diet. She is also more sensitive and fussy than dd1 and any little thing can upset her easily, which stresses me out.

I know I feel especially stressed from about 3pm. I'm usually quite even before then and find going out with the 3 kids okay. I find getting out of the house helpful for stress normally but if we're going somewhere in the arvo it's harder for me.
I think it's a combo of low blood sugar and the kids getting tired and ratty.

Don't be scared, just be prepared. I do things like get the older child's lunch and snacks ready the night before so whether we are going out or staying home its all done. And my own lunch too, which usually gets eaten standing up holding the baby or while putting DS down for his nap!
Also I get all our clothes laid out the night before and everything by the front door ready to go out.
When bub has her first little morning nap I rush around dressing and putting sun screen on DS, putting bags in the car ready to go out, cleaning up after brekkie (only DS's mess as i never get time to eat more than a banana), and then attempting to play with him for five mins to stop me feeling guilty about lack of one to one time!
The pace is a bit overwhelming, hence the stress, but i am getting used to it and finding ways to manage it like the things I mentioned above. If you can baby wear then do it, unfortunately my bub doesn't like it and only likes being carried. Would be much easier if she was in an ergo or something with both hands free!

I'm pretty much the same but the worst time for me is the whole dinner, bath, bed evening thing! I dread it every day. Im so tired at these hours and with issues at mealtimes every night I just loath it. Hate it!!!!!!!!
