My tough parts were breastfeeding (which I didn't do in the end), sleep was tough but hardest was housekeeping! The house was a pig sty. My SO ended up getting really frustrated and we fought around 4-6 weeks. It was just hard to feed him, pump, try to sleep, eat, shower, etc. I felt liek Elliott always needed my attention. And when I had free time, I was trying to create birth announcements or I wanted to go online or chill for a little bit rather than rush and try to clean house. Mostly I tried to take naps, but he got tired of working full time, having to make dinner and clean. While I understand, he doesn't know what it's like to only get 30 min of sleep here and there while you can.

Now, it's much easier since Elliott is older, sleeping through the night and is fine bouncing in his chair or something, but I still don't have that much time to dedicate to specific tasks.
