i can't do it anymore i go all day with just 4 hours of sleep and everybody just laughes about it and tells me to suck it up. I am just now getting my 18 month old to sleep through the night and now little guy doesn't sleep at all. I have no family that can come and take them for a couple of hours so i can get some sleep. My mother_in law just laughes at me and everybody tells me it will get  better well each day that goes by it seems to get worse and i get less sleep. My husband doesn't seem to care.I don't get a chance to take a nap during the day b/c my oldest dosen't take a nsp or if she does little guy is a wake or i have to clean.

Talk to your husband tell him how you feel and you need help. I hope things get better soon.

It does get better -- but, you need help NOW! I'm sorry no one seems to be of any help. Your husband definitely SHOULD be helping...so, you need to find a way to fix that! How about friends with children...maybe some one would trade days or a few hours with you of "babysitting"...they could take your kids one day and you theirs? Or, maybe a relative other than your MIL who should also be of help -- but, sounds like she isn't at all ;(. have you checked "groups" on here for local groups that have play dates? Maybe you could meet some Mom's who are in your situation and have a babysitter they use or could recommend? If cleaning or napping is a choice...FORGET cleaning...that will be there whenever you have time...SLEEP! And, if you are feeling depressed, talk with your Doc..if you have a new little one at home you could have some mild PPD. Good Luck!
