Feeling low.

Hi all
Not sure if I'm putting this in the right place, but here goes.

My little girl is 8 weeks old, she hasn't been the easiest baby, she has colic and reflux. About 3-4weeks ago she went through a stage of constantly crying, which really got me down. What's been really playing on my mind recently is that, I really don't feel as though I've bonded with her, and this is making me feel awful! What kind of mother feels like that!
I was just wondering if anyone else ever felt like this?

I think it's more common than you would think. People don't like to admit it

You are exhausted. It will get easier and you will bond. If you feel things don't get better, speak to HV or GP

Try to take care of yourself too. Eat properly and rest when you can, even for short naps
