I could imagine that in a community there would often be someone to take care of the other kids while the mother takes a nap when the smallest one is sleeping, but I'm just guessing. I think that big families have the advantage of there being more people available to help out, which would make it easier for the mother. African friends have told me they don't even leave the mother alone for several weeks after birth, nor do they let her do any chores. I can't say whether...
I may be completely wrong, so just ignore me if you my advice sounds bad.... Do you think it would help if you would just STOP?

My husband had been living here for 3 years when i met him, and even though he has adapted quite well (he grew up in several different countries, I'm sure that helped), it's still a process. My mother had a hard time adjusting to Europe, but I think that was connected to the specific situation of our family. I know people who have spent more than half their lives here in Europe and still just want to go home,...
