Well, its been a long time coming, but I'm really starting to love this. The big break came when I learned to nurse in bed and got comfortable with cosleeping, and since then it has just gotten better and better. Don't get me wrong, there are times when all I want to do is ignore the baby for ten minutes while I take a hot bath LOL but thankfully those times are few and far between. I am so happy that I have an easy baby, I am thankful every day for it.
We tried going back to work and it was pretty awful, DH came with and we spent the whole 4 hours passing the baby, I only worked for about an hour and a half.. He won't go down unless he's on me or in his swing, and my back is too rough to use a carrier (any carrier, he hates the Ergo, we did try it) for more than an hour without pulling my shoulder muscle (old injury). I'm trying to find a cheap swing on craigslist, I think if I find one and take it to work with me that I will be able to put him down for nappies and get some real work done in the hours between nursing. If not, I guess I'll just try again in a month or so!
I never thought I would ever have the energy to go back to work after I had him. Just feeding myself was such a chore! Things have gotten so much better. Hang in there new mamas. You will be able to stop "sleeping while the baby sleeps" soon LOL and be able to go out without dreading it!
