MOST HELPFUL POSTS

Yes I do everyday and I have three children. I am also married. So there is not only my children to make happy and please. It is a very tough job. I have just started waking my kids up as early as 7am although i am not a morning person. I drink coffee in the morning. (its a lie that it stunts growth, look it up on google). That usually helps me go until my husband comes home from work then I am ready to fall asleep. I nurse a baby too so that takes a lot of my energy. I also do a 20 minute workout in the morning after my coffee to get my blood flowing to help me wake up and keep my momentum going through the day. For my time to rest, well thats why i wake up my kids very early in the morning so that they are asleep and in bed by 8pm. This way i have the choice to go to sleep early or to have a peaceful mind before i go to bed.
My husband helps when he can. I recommend asking a friend or family to come over and help you watch your baby. If you have a pump, pump some milk out and store it for whoever you have that can help you this way you can lay down and rest and whoever is helping you will have milk for your baby. Thus allowing you to have non interrupted R&R. It doesnt hurt to ask for help sometimes.
