I have an almost 6 week old baby and an 8 year old son. I also live with a guy who is generally great. I am also in college full time and the semester is winding down (ends December 7th) so work seems to be piling up around me. My boyfriend is working nights this week and next week so I am home alone with the kids at night and I just can't seem to get anything done. The baby is going through that stage where he gets fussy in the evening and I hold him a lot so he doesn't like to be put down (my fault maybe, but I love holding him). I don't know if I am under too much stress or if I am struggling with postpartum depression, but I feel like I am about ready to lose it. I get to the point where I don't want to take care of the baby (I do of course, and do so lovingly, but I don't have any real desire to tend to him), I have no energy, I am tired and just want to eat everything in the house.
