This baby won't let me sleep.

I've been trying to get a nap all morning but the baby keeps messing with me and pulling my hair. I could use a nap before the other kids get home but it doesn't look like its going to happen. I am so tired. Just venting a little.

Try snuggling & wrapping in a blanket, holding close to you. Mine does the same until I do that, then she's knocked out...like she is now. Lol

We laid in bed and she nursed for like an hour. But she slept well last night so now she's all kinds of awake. I thought I could take a cat nap while she plays but she's not having it. Hopefully my mom will help out when she gets here. I work nights. I was off last night but didn't sleep.

Is this your first? This is my first biologically & I NEVER thought we'd get past the jaundice, staph & cyst phases of her life. Lol Family definitely helps when you need a break.

I could have written this except for the other kids part. My son has been pulling my hair, getting at my boob, biting my nipples, and scratching my face.

No. She's my 3rd. My oldest is in school but gets out early and my mom has my son. She's picking up my daughter from school too. My husband just started truck driving so he's gone. The goal is for me to quit once we save a little money and he's gettin full pay. Until then I'm losing a lot of sleep. Lol. I have a lot of help. Just not today.

Welcome to Motherhood :)

Try rocking the baby and a blanket in the face. I used to do that with ds and he always knocked out lol. Hope this helps.
