I am glad you are hanging in there. The first 3 weeks or so were the hardest for me with recovering and adjusting to the sleep deprivation and having 2 babies (but I also had another section). Your MIL sounds JUST like mine... not terribly helpful but well intentioned... sooo annoying. She was best with keeping Nora busy for us. After the first month when baby starts sleeping better it gets SOOO much better, I thin the hourly nursing was the hardest at night then having both kids all day. Around 8 weeks adam finally started giving me 4 hour stretches at night and I transitioned him into his cosleeper (he slept on me for the first 7 weeks) and I slept better and could function better. Nursing got A LOT better at around 5 weeks too.
Hang in there. It will get easier! Can you believe how much you love the second one? That came as a surprise to me!
