Im 25 married have 3 girls and 1 boy and he is in the hospital. He will be in there for 6 to 8 weeks how do people deal with things like that and the stress that they have. I got one in school soon to be two of them and then two at home my youngest girls is really jelous cause I cant carry her and she wants to be held close. My Husband works doing Potatoes and right not it is his busy time so he wont be home much so Im more or less doing this on my own. I really get stressed out and dont no how to deal with it all.

my daughter was in hospital for a month and a half at about 2-3 months old then on off since then and shes now 12 months. its really draining staying in a hospital room all day although thier are lots of things there to keep them entertaining its more hard for the parents

Thank you. Yes it is very hard soing this alone. I think I just get stressed out cause I wanna be there all the time with my baby boy but I have the others at home and I cant leave them out of the Picture cause that is not right. Yes I have family and friends that somewhat help out but you no how that goes. My oldest is 71/2 and my second is 5 and third is almost 2 and my youngest is 17 days old.

Hi Nicole.. I understand your stress! I have 2 boys that are 1 and 2 and they are 15 months apart. I couldnt even imagine having 4 kids to take care of. It makes you feel completly helpless when your child is sick so that dosent help your stress! Do you have any friends or family that can help you? I would reach out for help if possible! Also, I was wondering how young your youngest is? Is it possible you have postpartum? I realized when my youngest was 4 months old that I had it when a friend of mine pointed it out to me and I saw my doctor.. He helped me alot and it made me feel better to talk to someone that really understood. Hang in there and I give you props! Its a job in a half to be a mother espically when your doing in alone!
