SO went back to work the day after we came home from the hospital. The hardest thing has just been being the one caring for the baby most of the day and night. On average, he feeds her once a day and changes probably one or two diapers . It's not his fault - he works all different hours and a lot of the time it's something like 10am-6pm which is the bulk of the day. And I get up with the baby at night so he can sleep since he's working. Just in the last few days, Anna has been really fussy and not sleeping very well, so finding time to make even a quick meal is hard, let alone making dinner. Not only that, but I can't shower unless SO is home because of my incision - it has to be cleaned and packed immediately after a shower in case the dressing gets wet. So, not only do I have to wait until he is home and has time, but we also have to wait until Anna is sleeping soundly so that he can do the dressing change when I'm done without listening to a screaming baby.

Sorry, that turned into a bit of a rant.
