So apparently I am blessed with kids/babies who are champion sleepers. Annee has consistently slept 5-6 hours at night before waking for a feeding and is gaining weight well. My mom has been a great help during the day taking care of our new baby and encourages me to sleep. I lay down for about an hour, but then I wake up and think I should get up to do ___insert whatever you want here___. The problem is I feel WORSE after napping, even though I'm really tired, and my body obviously needs to rest to help recover from having a newborn. Seriously, I'm falling asleep at the dinner table, at restaurants if we go out for lunch (getting out of the house helps with my baby blues), and right after I wake up in the morning. I keep trying to explain to my mom that I feel worse after sleeping, and logically I know the baby is fine, but just can't seem to get the rest I need. It's an anxiety issue, I think, but I don't know what to do to fix it. Help?
