Welcome to pets.ca, Sunaj52
When we had our first litter of foster pups, I could have sworn it was just like having newborn babies in the house. The only exception is that with pups, it only lasts a couple of months, if that, whereas with skin babies, it can go on for years. You can take comfort in that
. If it's lack of sleep that's your biggest problem right now, try to nap when the puppy naps until your girlfriend starts to feel better.
Love to see pics of your 'baby'
