My partner and I have a beautiful 6 month old baby boy. My partner works 4 nights a week and goes to uni 3 days a week. I've been back at work for 2 months working 2/3 shifts a week. Trying to juggling being the best mum, wife, workmate and friend is really taking a toll of my mental health and my ability to function. I need more help in terms of the housework and just help looking after our son. But my partner can't drop any days for work or go to uni and less so we're stuck. And it'll be the same work / uni schedule for the next 2 years.
Both our parents help out so much and have him when I go to work and some nights of the week but there's so much time where I'm by himself and especially night time / close to bed time it's so hard and all he does is cry and fight going to sleep and I'm left to deal with it on my own and most nights I'm left in tears. I have no idea how we're going to handle it as a family as this is our life for the next 2 years and I'm already not coping.
Looking for any advice or how do other couples handle it. I don't know how our relationship will go at this point and mentally I'm struggling and close to breaking point.
