My baby is breastfed and wakes every 3 hours or so for a feed. I feed him for at least half an hour (he's not gaining enough weight so I need to keep this the minimum time). Then it takes another half hour to burp him and change his nappy. Then I have to hold him until he falls asleep, by the time he is in a deep enough sleep that he won't keep waking it leaves me with about an hour before his next feed is due! I'm meant to be going back to uni in September (my son is 3 and a half weeks old) and I don't know how to handle it. I'm also trying to pass my driving test and I almost went through 2 red lights last lesson because I can't concentrate.I feel like I can't take much more! Trying to take each day at a time but when I think this could be going on for years I want to scream. I cry everytime my baby wakes now, I'm not with the baby's father so I don't have the help from him. Does anyone have any advice?! I know there is no easy way out but I'm desperate for any tips?!
