Is there anyone else out there that is going stir crazy for being in the house so much? I am 5 wks post partum and have a 2 yr 9 month old toddler, Sophia. I get so sad being in the house all day and night. There are days that I don't even walk outside. I am taking care and breastfeeding my newborn, Bella. It's hard for me because I am home alone all day while my husband is at work. There are times that I can't really take Sophia outside because I am tending to Bella. I do sit outside and try to play in the backyard with Sophia while I am holding Bella. I have tried going to the park, but it's so hard by myself, especially because of the breastfeeding. The other day I got brave and walked to the grocery store with both kids and on the way back Bella started screaming because she was hungry. So, I fed her on the busy street just standing on the sidewalk!!! LOL!
I get sad because I feel bad for Sophia. I want her to have fun and play, but there isn't anyone else available and it's hard for to take her place because I don't want to leave the house with the Bella.
I just need to vent and hear other stories from other mothers - if there are any similar.
