I’ve been feeling really down recently. In a sort of hole that I can’t seem to climb out of. I’ll be fine all day, right up until when P1 goes to bed. I’ll just be quiet and down, then randomly cry.
I really think it’s a lack of sleep causing this. P2 has been waking and feeding every two hours throughout the whole day. I’m completely exhausted. I’ve had to up my intake of liquid, eat a lot more just to be able to feel half human. Even that hasn’t worked.
I’ve also been trying to wean P2 off of co sleeping, mixed with this heat and it just hasn’t been a fantastic mix for either of us. Luckily, I’ve just woken from a nap with both my girls.
I fed P2, who reluctantly fell asleep, whilst laying in bed. Then I pretty much forced P1 to join us, she’s been very demanding and stroppy today, I gave her tickle back and the next thing I know it’s two hours later, both the girls still soundo.
I’m feeling better. I’m feeling less monstrous. I think where possible I’m going to have to nap during the day again. At least until P2s demands become less during this absolutely beautiful heat wave.
