Feeling guilty over wanting a second baby so bad, trying for 2.5 years, giving up, conceiving, and now hating these first months. My 5 year old was difficult and I just forgot the feeding, sleeping, playtime, me time struggles. I love my son so much, but am finding myself wishing it was 6 months from now when he can sit up, play with toys, eat cherrios, sleep through the night, etc. Is it me or are other moms jealous of those "good baby's" who sleep through the night and are on a schedule at 6 weeks? BTW I'm reading everything from Week by Week, to Ferber, to Babywise. Nothing works.....yet. Any words or stategies to get me through these first few months?
I have three that are younger than four, and when it gets to me, I just try to slow it down and take things minute by minute. Someday, as much trouble as they can be, we will regret that they aren't our babies anymore! Good luck and hang in there!
The newborn phase is difficult. Just try not to "wish" it away..because he won't be little much longer. Sounds like you are doing your best to get him on a schedule..just keep being consistent and things will fall into place. Don't beat yourself up for not "loving it" though. It is a difficult age!
