I have an automatic swing. My 2 week old spends too much time in it and not enough time in my arms. I am sling dysfunctional. I cannot make them work. My toddler gets rocked to sleep every night by daddy screaming "I want mommy!" because I am too exhausted to put her to bed. My toddler also no longer sleeps in bed with me because no one sleeps that way. She wants to watch the baby nurse and then wants me to rock her. So she and my dh sleep in another room. I miss them both and I know she misses me. I don't have the energy or time to play with my toddler as much. My 2 week old gets put down much more than my first baby did. I still haven't figured out how to get my toddler down for a nap when I am here alone. I am tired and have so much guilt about all those things. When does it get better?
