Feeling lonely

I'm feeling so lonely and emotional at the moment I've recently had my second baby and enjoying my two beautiful children. But I think a combination of lack for sleep and toddler tantrums is wearing me down. I find it hard to share any troubles I have with others because I don't want to appear like I'm moaning or can't cope :/

It get a better trust me. When my second was born my first was only 18 months. Both are now 26 months and 8 months and things are getting easier You are doing a great job and it natural to feel the way I feel I was the same. Talk your partner and family it helps trust me

Thank you all for commenting, its made me feel a lot better 😊 most days I feel ok, but just had a bad day today xx

First of all, congratulations on your precious newborn! ✨️ I have a 2 year old and an almost 9 month old, so believe me when I say I know you feel. Please, please, accept all the help offered and ask for help if you need it. I know it's easier said than done. Asking for help has always been one of the hardest things to do for me. But don't make the same mistake I did as it only led me to a severe PPD. You're now in the trenches of it all. The first few months I was in a constant survival mode. Take each day as it comes, drop your expectations a little, give yourself some grace, and, please, prioritise time for yourself. You've got this! Xx

Couldn't agree more with the comment above. Parenting is HARD and can be very lonely at times. My toddler is tantruming loads and generally not listening and my 7 1/2 month old is busy enjoying his freedom crawling around to anything he shouldn't and trying to stand up - It is full on. Handling 2 is definitely next level. I'm sure if you spoke to a friend who also has two they would totally understand and definitely not thing you are moaning x

Zero judgement here, having two little ones is hard work. I'm currently juggling a 15 week old and a two year old whose fully into the terrible twos so I feel your pain. I'm sure you're doing remarkable 😊 chin up sweet x
