Persephone: Parent

And the insomnia returns

on June 7, 2013

Blame it on me worrying about travelling today, but from half ten last night to half 1 in the morning Elvis slept right through.

I was wide awake.

He then fed from half 1 to half 3. I wanted to sleep.

We both slept from half 3 to half 5 and now I’m feeding him again.

My nipples ache after/during a feed. He keeps leaking milk. My breasts feel incredibly heavy and achey before he wants another feed making it impossible for me to want to hold him against me. My shoulder is killing me from bad posture that I can’t seem to figure out when he’s on the left hand side; it now even hurts to lie down. I’m starving through the night so keep snacking, my teeth are going to rot.

I hate this and today my inevitable exhaustion is my own fault because my mind refused to rest for the 4 solid hours Elvis slept. I really want to walk out.
