Oh my goodness! My son is 10 weeks old and BARLEY sleeps at all

During the day he takes maybe 5 20 minute catnaps and at night wakes up twice, plus he's gassy and fussy! I did not expect motherhood to be this tiring and exhausting! What the hell is going on, when will this change, has anybody else had a baby like this? I'm physically and mentally exhausted!

  • Every baby is different. Mine was the same as yours, very short cat naps during the daytime, waking frequently at night, fussy baby. I don't think it's of any solace, but it won't last until college =P Mine is now 17 months and still doesn't sleep through the night so I'm waiting for my time to come still. Catch naps when you can, and TRY to enjoy the baby days. I found myself with a baby attached to my boob most of the day, and a novel in hand. It's hard, I feel for you.
