How do you guys deal with the stress & lack of sleep? I feel so overwhelmed that I find myself crying, I know I'm not depressed I'm just overwhelmed. I didn't expect to have a c section & I think that made things harder on me. He's my first baby & I just wanna be a good mom.

Are you sure you are not depressed? It is hard to adjust to having a newborn. Everything changes..your sleep and everything. It can be overwhelming in the beginning..but trust me you will adjust with time. Take naps when your baby is napping..get help from family and friends. Even if a family member can come look after the baby for a half an hour so you can take a shower. And speek to your nurse about the crying. Try and relax,dont be to hard on yourself and get help if you need it.
