Hello there,

this is the first time i'm open to share my life as a mom. I have a 5 weeks old and a 3 year old. I was born and raised in another country and i come from a very big family with many aunts and cousins but unfortundaly i do not have any relatives here in america besides my husband and his family. I just learned today that i have mastitis due to breasfeeding my baby she eats a lot like every 1 1/2 hours during the day and take about 2 long naps lasting 3 hours and the rest of the time she likes to Nap lying on my chest which is ok she is a newborn. My issue is that when my 3 year old is at home he is always demanding something , i take some blame because my husband and i spoiled him so much since we did a lot in order to have him, many years trying so we always thought he was the only one until last may i noticed that i was again pregnant. So now we our miracle baby Lilianne. she's beautiful and perfect. My main issue is being alone this time i'm taking 3 months of maternity leave, so far i have survived but being sick is not fun , i feel depressed and alone , i talk to my family over the phone and my sister in laws have visited a few times but most of the time it's me and the kids until my husband gets home. I would like to get some advise on how to organize my day , clean the house and take care of the kids, i was raised going to school and have been always working full time so i'm not the best stay home woman and i think that is my main problem , hopefully someone can relate and offer some advise

thanks everyone
