HELP! DD1 (4) has suddenly become annoying!!!
I have a new baby (8 weeks) and over last month have lost relationship with D1. I feel like all I do is tell her off or tut at her.

She has become very needy, silly, annoying in fact.

I dont want to get in to a negative apiral and feel like an awful mum.

You are probably less patient than usual through tiredness and she is probably feeling jealous of the new baby.
Is your eldest in school?

Sounds quite normal to me.
Parent less patient than usual through tiredness. First born feeling jealous of the new baby. It's not surprising she is needy. I think the answer is as much attention and cuddles as possible. Is she in school? Could you plan something special for after school?

Ooh, I don't know how that happened. I seemed to have posted my draft post which was a bit blunt!
