Neighborly Love or Personal Limits? A New Mom's Dilemma 🤱❤️🚫

In the world of unexpected neighborly requests and the chaos of newborn life, where do we draw the line between helping out and setting boundaries? Our new mom found herself in a pickle, torn between empathy for a neighbor's difficult recovery and her own postpartum exhaustion. With a baby of her own and a toddler to chase, she decided enough was enough, sparking a debate on compassion versus self-care. 🍼💪 Let's dive into the collective wisdom of the internet to see where sympathies lie in this tale of two families, newborns, and the boundaries that keep them apart. 🌐💬

New mom deserves help, not to take on another household's chores. 👶
