I haven't had the baby blues as such but I use to feel upset just Because she didn't look at me during feeds I felt she didn't love me and when she use to cry and I couldn't settle her I felt like a bad parent. don't feel like your the only one. Having a baby is very life changing and your emotions are still all over the place. Bonding with your baby is hard as you have to figure out what your both comfortable with, as the saying goes Rome wasn't built in a day. Bonding with your baby is a slow rewarding process. Try to relax and enjoy yourself they grow so quickly x
Hi this is my first post, just looking for a bit of support.
I had bad baby blues at days 4 and 5, which manifested in fears that I don't love my baby and won't enjoy being a mum. I got much better since although I now accept that bonding is going to be gradual for me as well.
However yesterday I was very blue and weepy all over again. Did anyone else have these ups and downs past the supposed day 3/4/5?
