Did you then wake up at 600 am and go to work?
You must be EXHAUSTED! .................
Imagine this feeling multiplied by 3 as if you woke up then went back to sleep, woke up then went back to sleep, woke up then went back to sleep and then woke up for the day finally at six am.
Now add to that, incessant cawing like a crow in your ear each time you woke up and for thirty minutes while you try to fall back asleep.
Now add bloody breast nipples and an aching back.
And... you can't get a nap until, if you're lucky, 600pm.
That would be 1/ 365th of what it feels like to be NURSING MOTHER in the first year of a baby's life.
The bleeding nipples, the cawing, the feeling of needing to go back to sleep AND...
there is no coffee left,
there are no groceries in the fridge,
there is a stinky dirty diaper flood in the bedroom,
the laundry is overflowing,
you haven't eaten a cooked meal in two months,
the bills are piled up next to the computer,
You have NOTHING to look forward to. No one is coming to relieve you at 600pm.
That would be 1/365th of what is like to be a SINGLE NURSING MOTHER in the first year of a baby's life.
