After only 2 weeks I remember being very stressed too....and this is a new job right?? I returned to my job I'd been doing forever (wayyyy too long) after both my boys were born.....Starting a new job and bringing baby to work....thats a lot....but what a nice opportunity your father has given you!!
I think you are doing all the right things (your baby is about 3 mo right??) As you continue and as she gets older it will get easier. I'd recommend a bouncy seat. It was the easiest transfer from my arms/ the sling into a napping spot cause I could still bounce the boys with my foot on the bouncy seat.....and if you can get one that vibrates, she might really dig it. My second slept for a while if the vibrator was working!! Actually, the bouncy seat was the only thing I had for Ds#1, Ds#2 was given a floor mat with the arch/toys by his auntie, and he liked that, but the bouncy seat was what always saved me cause they'd actually sleep in it.
Once they can sit up and play it is a bit easier cause they can begin to occupy themselves, at 3 mo they really occupy themselves by looking at and interacting with you, so it is difficult to try to not engage them
. Is she picking up toys yet??? Maybe she will have a favorite toy to hold and mouth after bit??? That always helped too, and the favorite toy stayed at the office, so it was new and exciting each time and was a special thing to have while there at work.
OH, and can I ask...what does it mean to be born at the donut depot???? Sounds rather exciting :LOL
I didn't realize the new thread started...I'll have to head over there.
Just wanted to also say though, mamabeth....glad you are finding some peace
