Feeling alone(6 Posts)
Hi I am new here, I have a 6month old beautiful daughter, and I am new to motherhood. Since lockdown I’ve started to feel a little lost in my self and like I have no one to talk to or express how overjoyed and overtired I am being a first time mam. I’ve never been one to have many friends and even so they don’t have children so it’s hard to see....well anyone never mind lockdown... I was really looking forward to meeting new mams and babies friends for my daughter and myself... but lockdown happened, I have a partner but he now works all day and night working two jobs, but I feel like he’s raining in on helping out with baby; yes I know he works but I feel as tho when he’s off he would rather play on PlayStation or phone or tv then play with daughter...... am I being unreasonable??? I feel guilty for feeling like this but I’m so tired but I love every minute of being a mam .... I just feel like a single parent at the moment
I'm sorry you're having a tough time. Sounds like your partner needs to step up more. Can I suggest you ask Mumsnet to move your post to Relationships? It can be quite offensive to single parents to hear you feel like a single parent because your partner works a lot because with respect, it really isn't the same. You'll get plenty of support and helpful advice on the right board though
Sorry new here and I'm using app how would I do that or even just delete this

We've moved this thread over to the relationships area for you OP.
There was a similar thread a few days ago. You need to meet up with other mothers - I suggested Meetup and NextDoor.
Your partner should be interacting with the baby. Your DD has two parents.
Congratulations on your baby DD.
