DS is 3 1/2 weeks old. BF has been a real challenge but it is now going well even though I find it to be so incredibly time consuming. I'm having such a difficult time trying to take care of him, myself & my 3yo DD. She is really craving attention because DS seems to be getting it all because I feel like all I do is feed him. So everyone keeps telling me that 6 weeks is the magic corner to turn. But, I'm curious, what exactly changes at that time that supposedly makes everything "so much easier"? Will I ever have more than 1 - 2 hours between the time he finishes eating & starts again? Will I ever get more than 4 hours of sleep at one time? I only have 4 weeks left until I go back to work and I'm worried that I'm going to be so frazzled and stressed still with the feedings.
