I had a baby 6 weeks ago. He doesn't like to be put down. I also have a whirlwind of a 2 year old. I CANNOT keep the house up. I try my damndest. I use a baby carrier and am able to usually keep the dishes up and some minimal picking up, but my toddler outpaces me a lot. The house is in pretty bad shape, and my back hurts from trying to get it cleaned up. I'm also still bleeding and I feel like it's because I'm doing too much and have been since the first week, when I took on my regular duties, so far as I am able.
I feel TERRIBLE about this. I need help. I don't have any family or friends nearby who can help me out. I have asked my husband several times and he forgets and I don't want to ride his ass about this... I feel like it's my job. I stay at home with the kids and he works to provide for us. I WANT to be able to keep the house cleaner than it is, but I really just can't.
What do I do?

see if your husband would be willing to hire someone temporarily until you get more energy. 6 weeks out after having a baby is not long enough to build your strength.
