this is going to sound horrible, and I’m prepared to hear that I’m ungrateful, but I’m at the end of my rope here!
I had a c-section on nov 20, I also have a 2 year old, so I’m on strict doctors orders not to lift my dd for 6 weeks. DH was home with us for 2 weeks, and when he went back to work my wonderful SIL, who I adore, said she would stay with me all day to help with the things I can’t do yet. My dad also has a few vacation days left, so he is helping a few days too.
SIL has a 5 month old baby girl who has a ton of tummy problems and cries all. The. Time. If she’s awake, she’s crying. I totally understand why she cries and I feel horrible for SIL, who tries her best to comfort her. Today is their 2nd day here and I’m going crazy with the amount if crying my niece does. I’m already a ball of emotion and stress from recovering from the csection and figuring out the 2 kid thing, the constant crying is pushing me over the edge.
I honestly think I would be better off lifting dd a few times a day than having a baby screaming all day. How can I tell SIL that she doesn’t need to come over without hurting her feelings? I love my SIL and she’s so helpful in other ways (she’s made supper for us several times), but I can’t deal with the constant crying (really, it’s a bloody murder scream) for 3 more weeks!
