Sosu- so sorry. I dealt with that when my second was born- not so much lashing out at the baby, but definitely lashing out at me. It's so hard to deal with, and I have no advice at all just understanding and lots and lots of sympathy. Tandem nursing is often really hard too. I know a lot of people say that it helps to build connection between siblings, but in my case it seemed to create more jealousy, friction, and tantrums than anything else, especially in the beginning when you just rotate which kid is attached to your boob... or one on each (I never felt like more of a cow then when nursing them both at the same time- oy!)
Sandy- Everett has occasional nights of screaming... and screaming. It's never happened 2 nights in a row, though, which leaves me scratching my head. Do I eliminate something I eat all the time- just in case- or not? Did I eat anything different on the screaming days? I haven't figured anything out yet, but it's super stressful for me. Screaming babies freak me out just a wee bit (I get panicky/stressed and then start to lose my temper with everything and everyone else. No good).
When my daughter (3) wakes up at night and insists on JUST me, if she doesn't go back to bed quickly then I usually turn on the light and read a book or something because it helps me look at her, realize she's just little, and not get as weird. I find nighttime and struggling to get someone to go to sleep in the dark when I'm super exhausted already does weird things to my head. Also those nights where you're up so many times that you start wishing the sun would come up so that you could just give up on sleeping entirely.
Shastilly- I keep telling myself that too. We'll get through it. Newborns are hard, this is hard, it will get easier. I want to cheer that - whoo-hoo, it's been 2 weeks already! We're getting through it!
