I certainly understand the challenge of having a new baby with no family nearby but I hope that you will seek out some friends that you can trust to watch your baby even for a short time so that you and your husband can get a break sometimes. Maybe someone in your circle would be open to hearing about baby behavior and you can "translate" your child's cues for them.

This was an excellent article. It really hit home with what my husband and I have been struggling with. We just had our first child and have no family in the area. So, we don't have a ready group of caregivers that are invested in getting to know and care for our child. Our friends don't understand why we can't just "get a sitter" to go out. I just can't see leaving our baby with a stranger that doesn't know him and can't respond to his needs. So, if he can't go with us then we don't go. It's exhausting, but I think it is so much better for our little guy (and for us since we're either all happy or all miserable!)
