Hi SumetimesBlue,

I can relate to this, my kids are 14 months apart in age. I beleive the first 6 months after my 2nd was born, I was in a total daze due to a lack of sleep and my body recovering. Remember you just had a baby only 3 months ago! It takes awhile for you to get used to the new baby, and for your body to heal. Just learning what crys are what can cause plenty of stress for anyone!

I am a little worried about the drinking, I hope you are not breastfeeding. Plus you need to be on top of stuff with a 2 yr. old getting into things and especially while you are holding the baby feeding him. The fact you do feel a bit razzled and are asking questions about this show me you are trying to do your best and you care. Some kids never even get that.
But one cool thing with your kids so close in age is that you can entertain both of them doing the same thing because they tend to enjoy the same things. My kids are 11 (boy) and 12 (girl), and they are very close and get along great, but when they fight it gets really emotional, so I am glad that doesn't happen very often. So good luck to you and and remember what you are feeling is perfectly understandable and normal.
