what do u mean by " they say ur child doesnt need u"?
she is happy without me
try to have a conversation with your family sis id they're not listening to you then you might do some police complaint or something
its literally a 11 month old baby , all he/she needs is his parents
is there some context to this story which idk about?
ever since I had the baby I felt very sad. like no one understands me. And my baby is happy around her father. which is a great thing. I am a working mother hence I am not able to give much time to my baby. My husband is wfh he is around the baby 24/7. What bothers me is that my family member say that my child needs her father more than she needs me. I am only the food supplier
well thats not true. u need to stop caring about whatever they say . just discuss this with your husband and he will give u the reassurance u need . also are ur parents trying to do anything other than saying this.. something like not letting you spend time with ur baby?
by parents i meant any family member*
they are not stopping me from anything. but these words hurt a lot. makes me feel unwanted
I do everything to support my family be it financially or emotionally but such words hurt a lot. I feel sad and left out. I don't feel like talking to anyone. No one will understand what I feel.
hey have you looked into postpartum depression?
maybe visit a therapist?
it seems like postpartum depression... I suggest u get into touch with ur doc to handle this
I haven't and if I discuss this with my family I don't think they will even consider this as a thing
correct me if I am wrong but PpD last only for 12 weeks.
I don't really know but the way u feel it seems so... u can try listening circles on this app, there's a counselor or a psychologist present, they can guide u better.
Thanks. Will try this
also don't think like that.... ur child needs both of her parents.. babies tends to favor the parent they spend their most time with or it can be opposite too... my cousin in her toddler phase used to favor her mom bcoz she spent less time with her(my aunts a working women too) .
I understand but hearing this statement again and again that the child does not need me is heart breaking. It hurts so bad. I have nurtured the child from the time she was in my womb.
u just need to work out timings with ur spouse when u r at home... like feed her, play time, bathing, (just two of u)etc... try to do it when u can- get into that kind of routine. and take care of ur mental health too... don't bottle up ur feelings, share it with someone. take care.
