A friend of mine constantly complains about how her baby (1 month younger than my baby) won't sleep through the night and she is so tired and blah blah blah...
My daughter is almost 5 months old. She does not sleep through the night and is EBF. She is usually up twice during the night to eat. That means I am up twice during the night. We co-sleep so it generally means latching her on and dozing off until she needs to switch sides but still... I get up at 4:30am for work. I also have a 2.5 year old SS. So the whole sleep when she sleeps thing doesn't work in my house. I have to get up when he gets up and if naps aren't timed correctly on the weekend, they don't nap at the same time so I don't nap.
My friend's boy is almost 4 months old. She is a stay at home mom. Only child. So I really don't want to hear about how tired she is and her son doesn't sleep through the night and on and on. She can nap when he naps. She can go to bed when he goes to bed. If he sleeps in, she can sleep in too. She really has no idea how difficult it could be. Or what sleep-deprivation really is.
I don't complain about how tired I am to anyone but my husband. And he gets tired of hearing it so I rarely say anything.
I know it's different for everyone. And I probably really don't have it as bad as it could be. The grass is always greener on the other side. Ect. I just need to vent a little bit. I'm tired. I get sick of hearing about how tired she is. If she thinks she's tired, she should try going back to work and managing another child. That's all. Pity party table for 1.
