My son was hungry all the time and constantly had colic (btw unless you're breastfeeding go with cow & gate; I did when I had my daughter and it sorted the colic straightaway, wish I'd known the first time round!) so I know what it's like.
The lack of sleep is the worst, everyone says it but sleep when you can! Even it's the middle of the day and your house is a tip, sleep wins. Also eat, I found myself miserable sometimes and realised I hadn't eaten all day.
Being a mum is the hardest (and worst paid!) job in the world but everything is easier once they sleep through, you will feel human again, just hang on!
Also remember; you're doing a bloody good job! You're the best mum your baby will ever have and he/she thinks you're perfect.
Hope you get some sleep tonight smile
