Finding decision making crippling

"D"H is forever telling me to go with the flow, but parenting doesn't work like that!
I'm exhausted by worrying about all the decisions I have to make in a day, and what is for the best. Mostly about food and sleep - definitely sleep.
14mo DS is currently late napping as he had a late night last night but of course didn't sleep in so he's trying to catch up now. I don't know whether I should wake him in the hope of a reasonable bedtime or to let him sleep his fill.
It's just the endless decision making and the pressure of getting it right.
I don't even know what I'm asking. I guess I'm just venting. And I know DH's "go with the flow" is him absolutely refusing to actually contribute.

one of the hardest things I found about being a parent is that there’s not one answer to a problem; I remember asking the health visitor for advice and her giving me several ideas and I was like “but what will work” and realising there’s no straight answer. I push my DH to tell me what he thinks now as he can sit on the fence a bit
