With a dehydration headache, backache, need to pee and overdue on thyroid meds. I dare not transfer after an hour long battle to get the overtired sad sack to sleep.
These are the times when I know just how easy it is to lose ourselves in the baby’s needs whilst ignoring our own.
But maybe I’m really meeting my needs as I don’t know if I could handle 3 hours of a cranky baby who doesn’t sleep if I were to unsuccessfully transfer.
All I know is one day he will squirm out of my arms not wanting cuddles anymore and I will reminisce on the days I was trapped.
