Hey guys I'm new to mums net ☺️
Just thought I would come in here and tell someone how I am feeling right now my daughter is 5 months old she is absolutely beautiful the only thing that is getting me through this lock down is her right now .my partner has recently been working away and I'm really finding it hard without him being here but I know he needs to work where the money is I just feel like I'm being selfish 😩 he is literally the best dad to our daughter and I feel like she misses him when his not here (we both really do ) my family live 20 miles away so FaceTime is my best friend at the momment . I don't even go for my hour a day walk as I'm petrified I'm going to catch it or even worse my daughter is anyone else going through the same situation I feel like I'm the only one 😕

You should definitely try to get out once a day for a walk. Do you have a sling? Fresh air is hugely important to your mental health. If you can walk somewhere with few people you will be fine. Even in busy places your chances of catching it by just walking past people are very very low! It’s more touching surfaces etc is the risk. But you won’t be doing that on a walk. Wash your hands, remove your shoes and change your clothes when you get in.

Look at online baby classes - I think there are some out there. Then you can do singing with other mums and babies if you want.

Look after yourself. Does your baby sleep well? Make sure you are as well rested as possible. Watch some television or read a book in the evening.

Definitely not the only one. I’m a lone parent so no partner to come home. So it gets very lonely being on my own all day every day with just the kids. Though from some of the threads I’ve read on here people are moaning about their partner being around all the time and having no space so seems you can’t win! I’m very lonely and would love some adult company personally. I agree with the walk, go if you can, my dd is on the extremely vulnerable list so we can’t go out but I think it would help massively if we could.

Thankyou for the reply guys I don't have a sling I will definitely purchase one and what online classes are there is there any that you know of ? My daughter does sleep through the night and I can't complain with that but I find it hard to relax myself I can't watch anything without loosing concentration 10 mins in x
