Hi ladies, my daughter is 3 weeks today and I've really had enough! I am beyond tired as i'm doing all of the night feeds (husband working & early start) my husband is also totally fed up and has a cold on top of it all. LO has last feed at about 10pm (120ml of aptamil) then generally wakes at 2, 4 and 6 ish but haves between 60-120ml. We are also giving her infacol for wind. she can sleep for 4 hrs in the day so why not at night? I've been prescribed as having postnatal depression & given anti depressents but haven't started taking them yet as im hoping I will feel better. I'm fixated on when things might get easier and am finding it all so hard. I'm 40 years old and this is my only child. my in laws have offered to have her overnight on a Thursday but husband has said no as he doesn't want to put on them. im desperate and am really struggling. Going over my mums now to get some sllep. Why am I finding it so hard? I am so overwhelmed by it all . Also, we are swaddling her at night in her moses basket - could she be too hot? we have put her in her own room in the moses basket as she is such a noisy sleeper and keeps us awake all night When does it get easier????????????
