The lack of sleep and sore nipples (though they aren't very sore anymore)

Sleep deprivation, sore nipples, and my 5 year old's behavior. My 3 year old has adjusted fantastically though

Managing both DD and a baby is the hardest for me. As he sleeps fine and DD loves him and is a huge help but if I am either nursing him or pumping and she needs help going to the bathroom. Its moments like that that I am still trying to adjust too and find the hardest lol

Dealing with DH's moods. He's great unless he has to do anything baby-related during the night. Then he's in a pissy mood and whines for days about how tired he is.

The hardest single thing was giving up on breastfeeding. Otherwise the hardest thing has been getting used to the sleep deprivation as well as adjusting to being a parent in general (not having the freedom of doing anything at any time, etc).

DD's behavior. She's starting to act out and she's having major sleep regression since Henry arrived, so not only is he keeping us up all night but now she is, too. Lots and lots of defiance and whining and tears. I'm also really struggling with my incision not wanting to heal, so I'm still not on my feet and can't keep up. Fortunately I have family here helping until the 20th. After that it's back to reality and we have to find a routine. I'm nervous, but I'm also really excited to start moving in the direction of normal.

This exactly. Anna inevitably has to go potty when I am nursing or pumping. It is also tough when I have to take care of Lena and Anna just wants to play. I feel bad when I have to tell her to wait.

Sleep deprivation for sure. And just managing three kids by myself all day and most nights.

Juggling baby and my 2 year old. Jaleigh is a huge help and loves everything baby. This is not her first rodeo and she is beyond excited. She will be the first to tell Kiefer "mommy can't do that right now, she's feeding baby sister". Kiefer hasn't acted out since the baby has arrived, he just doesn't get that I can't always drop what I'm doing right when he wants me to. He is such and active child that its been hard for me to keep him entertained while taking care of McKinley at the same time.

Having a baby that wants to be held ALL THE TIME who is also very fussy to the point I want to cry along beside her.

Still bleeding.

Needing so much help. And feeling so helpless when I am on my own with G for a few minutes, but I get hungry or want to move to another room, and I can't, I have to wait for someone to come back and carry him for me or go to the kitchen for me. And I can't be alone with my DD because I am still too vulnerable, she has already hurt me several times by jumping and climbing on me inappropriately, but she's only 2 and doesn't understand what she can't do or why. Basically it's all just this dumb SPD thing other than that I am super lucky to have a mellow easy baby and no breastfeeding issues beyond some oversupply soreness. Maybe it helps that all I *can* do right now is lie in bed with him all day and night.
