Newbie in need of advice and support
Hi all, hope you don't mind me joining and posting but as the title says I'm in need of some advice and support. I have a 14 month old and 11 days ago I gave birth to my second. To say I'm feeling overwhelmed is an understatement. I seem to have forgotten everything about what to do with a newborn and feel like i'm doing it all wrong. I'm so torn when it comes to splitting my time and constantly feel I'm neglecting one child over the other. For example, after feeding and winding the baby I felt like I hadn't given my eldest enough attention so I popped the baby in her Moses basket for a sleep but then she didn't seem to be able to settle on her own and I felt guilty for letting her moan a bit till she fell asleep rather than picking her up and cuddling her to sleep. But then that would have meant more time away from my eldest. I feel so torn all the time and a not like a headless chicken. I'm really hoping that some of you can give me some advice from your experience as at the moment I just feel lost! Thanks in advance and nice to "meet" you all.
