How is baby now? Have you discussed going to formula with pediatrician? Baby might be out of the woods on complications and able to thrive on formula. Taking care of you will help you take care of baby. Look at getting back on your meds, if they helped. This is an incredibly stressful environment. Be kind to yourself. "Barely functional" means something has to change. Don't feel guilty about that.

I don’t know what’s right for you and your situation, but one of the most important lessons of motherhood to internalize as early as possible is that taking care of yourself (whatever that looks like) makes you a better mother. I FF both my children for both physical and mental health reasons. They are 5 and 7, and thriving.

I’m concerned about my mom’s health and want to work closer from home. Is this a valid reason for me to apply to a consulting job that is closer to home?

I saw that some of MBBs have offices pretty close to my home (~10 min). When applying to the positions, can I mention that I want to take care of my parent?
