I am wondering how to cope with my very high need baby without going mad and being able to care for my two others as well... at the moment life is hell, this baby is crying or breastfeeding or I need to hold her in my arm (but not in a sling or carrier!)
she is having catnaps in a carrier, but it´s a major project to get her to sleep. If she is awake she does not like to be in a carrier or lying down. She does not "play" with herself at all.
I physically cannot care for her, I feel that I am starting to get depressed and I withdraw from her because I cannot stop the crying, it´s like CIO in a carrier. At least she is with me - I guess, but than, I kind of ignore her and try to block her crying. Which is not nice.
But I cannot just sit and breastfeed her! I need to cook and clean and look after the other two. I am exhausted and crying a lot and in general not a good mom at.all.
I feel like going to work again, at least I´d have a bit of quiet there!
