My son, our first child, is now around eight weeks old, and I am starting to really stress out. When he is awake, he wants to be eating, entertained, or simply held, so I rarely have a chance to even go to the bathroom without him crying the whole time. And when he finally goes to sleep (which isn't often), I am so busy eating, going to the bathroom, and just recovering that nothing seems to ever get done.
I can't seem to find time to take care of myself or the house. So, I guess I am just wondering, is this normal? I don't have any close friends with kids, but the people I do know seem to be doing just fine. Am I doing something wrong? Does it get easier?
