    Not knowing what is wrong and nothing settles them when they are screaming the house down and you've tried everything you can think of.

    Thought I would bump this topic as there are lots of new mums out and loads more coming up...

    The hardest thing, beside the loss of sleep, is trying not to be too protective! Let Dad do what he needs to even though it's not how you would do it!

    Also, changing them all the time, nappy. clothes and bedding, because they poo, wee and vomit all the time.

    The broken sleep, knowing that you are going to have to get up in three hours or so can be really depressing.

    Not being able to eat a meal together.

    Feeling judged by family members who think they know better what baby wants/needs etc.

    Finally getting baby off to sleep and deciding to try for some yourself only to have her wake up just as you drift off.

    Not being able to sleep when baby is asleep - my mind keeps churning over & I just can't nod off *yawn*

    I tried and tried to sleep when baby slept it was totally impossible for me too !! I heard all the little voices in my head saying "sleep NOW", I heard DH telling me to sleep, I even heard the girl at the coffee shop telling me to sleep .... never could ...

    I also think Doctors who won't listen to your mothers instincts.

    I also get annoyed when I got out to places and you carn't find a plastic cup !!! especially at my parents place ..

    Also those looks you get in public when your bub is crying ....
