Feeling like a failure
Why is this so hard? I’m 17 days PP. up until day 14 LG was wonderful, a textbook easy baby. Since then she cries every night. Sometimes from 4-5 o’clock until 11 when she finally goes down. We are lucky in that she is a good sleeper overnight - I have to wake her for feeds - but the evenings are becoming almost impossible.
Im sure she is cluster feeding and I understand why she needs this but it makes it almost impossible to have a break. My partner is doing everything he can to support me but he’s finding it just as tough, and a knock on him that he can’t help our LG more to give me a break. We’ve tried bottles with expressed milk but it never settles her or soothes her.
Currently sat in a dark bedroom alone with her either on my breast or fussing and crying when she takes herself off it, feeling like a complete failure and not sure I can do this.
Just needed to get this off my chest, it’s just so hard.
