Dd2's naps have also been 30 minutes lately. Once in a while she'll do a longer one in the car or carrier, but generally they're short. She's not fussy though so I'm just going with it for now. She refused to sleep in the crib until last weekend when she did one nap in there. Usually she naps in the RNP or mamaroo.

katka512 I hope you are able to find a balance in your breastfeeding and exercising soon. For me, it wasn't until 6 months when sleeping because more predictable and solids were introduced to allow me to get out of the house for any decent length of time. I completely understand the need for a stress relieving outlet.
Things are still crazy but I'm used to it now. However I still have mommy guilt. When I go to bed at night I worry that I spent too much/little time on one of the girls. It's not a good feeling. I talk to my husband about it. He says I'm doing great but admits that he never feels like this and doesn't emotionally understand how I feel. I'm hoping the mommy guilt eventually fades.
After DS was born, I had a lot of guilt. Not if I spent enough time with each one on one but more along the lines of having the kids so close that I was cheating DD out of experience us one on one. I found talking my thoughts with a therapist were incredibly helpful - not for PPD/PPA but just for some assistance getting my head on straight about the massive changes that were going on in my life. I only went for like 3-4 sessions and I am so happy I did.
