Feel like I can't cope...

Ds is 4 weeks old and for the last week or so I have done nothing but cry, I feel like I am not coping very well and am a rubbish mum. He is waking every 2 hours during the night which is making me exhausted, so exhausted that most days I just don't have the energy to get dressed.

Dd is four years old and I am constantly snapping and her and dh because I am so tired, when he is nothing but helpful. It has got to the point where dd is asking why is mummy crying

Please tell me it gets better....

I was exactly the same! A new baby is tiring and is a shock.. I felt as if I had to be some sort of super mum and awake, up and dressed and looking perfect every day as well as spending all night awake. If you have realised that you are snapping more than you think is appropriate, contact your GP for some advice? You may be suffering from postnatal depression and he can help you with that..
