Ever since I became a mom I've been extra hard on myself. My baby is almost 3 months and not really on any kind of nap or feeding schedule. She won't stay asleep in her crib so she sleeps in her rock n sleeper next to my bed. She outgrew her bassinet so quickly. She happy and healthy but sometimes I feel like a bad parent when she won't nap or when she won't stop crying. I just wish parenting came with a manual. I keep telling myself that every kid is different so just bec my friends baby had a routine at one month doesn't mean that my baby has to have one too. The only time she naps is in her swing, after she nurses or in the car. Sometimes she just falls asleep because she's overtired. She only sleeps in her crib for less than an hour but usually when I lay her down she wakes up crying soon after. I think I just had the idea that mommy hood would be easier but it's so not. I'm the only one who is hard on myself. My hubby always says that I'm doing great. Just needed to vent.
