Limited Sleep, Nursing, and low sex drive, HELP!
Posted December 22, 2013 - 12:44pm
I have 2 girls, 6 and an 8 month old. My husband has been working 6 days a week lately and I work on weekends. It's been a struggle to get my 8 month old to sleep through the night, as she shares a room with her older sister. Ferber method can't really work because her sister needs sleep to function the next day at school. My husband leaves to work at 5:30, so i feel bad having to bother him, and well she just wants to nurse as well. I do pump, but as i said i feel bad bothering daddy as he also needs his sleep to function on his long 12 or more hour days at work. My sex drive is on an all time LOW! My husband tries to understand, but he's obviously sexually frustrated, and i'm just too exhausted. During the day instead of napping when my little one naps, I try to get as much done while my eldest is in school, cooking, cleaning, laundry etc. Anyhow, i'm cranky, and i'm feeling like i'm at my wits end. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
