How important is it to have a life outside being a mum?
I have been struggling the last few weeks with not having any life outside my daughter. She's 7 months old and a bottle refuser, so I'm unable to spend much more than about 4 hours away from her. It's not enough for me and I'm feeling very restricted and I have no time to myself, and even H and I haven't really been out since she was born. I feel like a mum and that's it. No me. No wife.
I guess my question is, am I being unrealistic? Is this what I (perhaps unknowingly) signed up for? Should I just suck it up and look forward to when she sleeps through and doesn't BF anymore, whenever that may be?
Please be as harsh as necessary, I think I need a kick up the bum to snap myself out of this pity party
