I have a 6 week old, this is our first child. Had a traumatic labour and when we first got home partner initially helped plenty. Due to having c section can’t do much inside or outside the house and it’s lonely. I haven’t been out the house much.
Baby won’t settle for a nap during the day and cannot get a moment to myself. Even going to toilet she will most likely cry.
Partner does help still but not like when we first got home. I get left some evenings or during weekend so he can go see friends. I’m with the baby all day and need a breather. When he is home I’m still doing everything for baby. Partner doesn’t hold baby for long especially when crying and she ends up in my arms as he loses interest. I have found myself crying most days don’t know if it’s tiredness, frustration, hormones or what
