I've heard so many comments about how I should sleep now, the first few weeks/months are rough, there are lots of meltdowns, etc.

What were your first few weeks like? I'll be home for 8-10 weeks, my mom will come for a week, MIL will come for a week, I think we'll be okay, but maybe I'm just being too rainbows and butterflies about it. I expect to be sleep-deprived from feeding LO every few hours and I expect to be busy trying to keep LO changed, burped, bathed, etc. as well as keeping up with laundry and cooking meals (I'm planning on lots of oatmeal, sandwiches, and easy throw-together dinners).

What was your experience like? What would you do differently?
