Mine is the "morning", around 7:00. I sometimes feel overwhelmed when hubby is getting ready to leave for work and I am so tired from being up since 5:00! I am much better around 9:00 when I have had some coffee and realize, "I can do this!"
I remember feeling like this when my daughter was a newborn, and was SO grateful when she started sleeping until 8:00!!
Anyone else have a time of day/night that seems to be the hardest to get through right now?
mine is from 8am-3pm when i have to deal with the twins, asking for stuff then the baby crying. It's really overwhelming, since I have no extra hand during that period. Then afterward its from 9pm around 12pm, baby just does not want to sleep during that time.
Evenings are rough for us, from 4 or 5 until around 9:00. Baby gets super fussy, the dog wants attention, we're tired and trying to get dinner, clean up and relax, and I'm always worried about him falling asleep early and not sleeping at bedtime. Ugh, it's awful!
Lunch time seems to be the hardest right now. Starting around 11am until 2pm baby is just fussy. She doesn't like to nap anywhere but in my arms. She sleeps great in her crib at night :knock on wood:, but wont sleep in her crib during the day. So putting her down to prepare lunch and eat is a PITB. Also by that point, DD1 is just bored silly and I am ready for a nap. Its just a recipe for disaster.
I had toast for lunch yesterday and DD1 had candy/junk because I just couldn't make anything else.

Mornings n evenings. Mornings he just can't settle down again after his feeding at 7. And in the evenings, it just seems like he has a bottomless pit, unless I'm not producing enough milk at night?? It seems I have to feed him every hr. , from like 8-11.
Afternoons. My baby is usually crying regardless of what I try (holding her, laying her down, swaddling her, putting her in a swing or bouncy chair, feeding her, wearing her in a moby wrap, etc). My older daughter will sometimes be refusing to nap. I need to do my paid work (I work from home part-time). And I need to get dinner prepped. And the house is usually a wreck from the kids playing all morning.

Not quite a set time, but I find it hard when he decides to forget how to fall asleep while I need to get things done. I have to carry him for an hour or two to fall asleep. This happens once or twice a week.
