Getting a bit much!

Hi, I am new to this so not really sure if this is the right place to be writing this. I have just had my first baby he is 12 weeks old beautiful and I couldn't ask for a better baby. He sleeps through from around 10 till 6 he feeds ok and he smiles and it melts my heart.

I suffered from anxiety for a while before getting pregnant and now I can feel it creeping back. I just keep feeling like it's all getting a bit much. The silly thing is the thing that pushed me to write this was buying him a new car seat. It sounds ridiculous but it just did. I sat trying to put him to sleep tonight while he fought me and screamed at me and I just cried and cried until my partner came upstairs and took him off me. I feel like the worse mum ever I can hear him upstairs crying but I don't have the strength to go up and help him.
Please someone tell me I am not loosing my mind! X

Congratulations on your baby!

We all need a break from time to time and it's a very good thing that your partner can settle your baby as well as you. Babies have bedtime screamathons all the time and it's only human to need a break.

Talk to your hv about the anxiety, you're best placed to know what's normal for you.
