One advice often underestimated by breastfeeding moms is to ASK FOR HELP. The late nights, witching hours, the purple cry, colic assumptions and so much take a toll and you feel to shout at the little baby in your hand. Oh yes, I have broken down twice in 22 days and more are to come.
I asked for help yes and got during the day hours. from my mom, my MIL and maids too.
However, what does it feel like when your cry for help doesn't get a response as much as you expected. My post midnights are toughest. Given that we cosleep and my hubby has never let me down, I chose to not involve anyone else for these hours except Mr. Hubby.
Most nights went smooth but a couple of them were disastrous. the moment when you need to grab that sanitizer while for ending your cranky infant and your hubby is in such deep sleep that your requests don't reach his ears!! The situation is nothing less than an Ekta Kapoor serial.
I curse. I cry. I crank.
It becomes an ego War for me and I decide each time I won't bother and will take care of the baby and manage breastfeeding all alone. Everytime I plan and yet I feel lonely every time hubby falls asleep and I am all. alone with baby latched on my breast.
And then I ask for help again.
The cycle is on. What's your ask for help story? Have you got all the help from hubby instantly? #breastfeeding #breastisbest #breastfeedingmom #babychakramoms #kolkatamoms #breastfeedingbabies #breastfeedingweek
