My daughter is one and a half month old, and ,it is now that i have started liking her, and being attached to her.. In the initial few days, she wouldn't sleep throughout the night, and I used to cry out to my mother, to take the baby out of my room, and bring her only for feeding.. This article surely helped in learning that this is normal.. Initially, i was happy that my mother takes care of my baby all the time, Now, I've also started loving my baby.. But, She seems to sleep in my mom's arms better than mine...And now, am scared she might become closer to my mother, than me.

I actually haven't given birth to my daughter Raedah yet, I'm 38 wks & counting. This website has already eased some of my nerves b/c now I know to take all of my feelings as normal rather than compare to everyone else's standards. Good job w/the site!! I'll keep you ladies posted on the birth & my first 3 months as a mom!

I am a mother of six weeks, and came across this website by accident. Thank you for the article, it is good to read there are other mothers out there like me! Nasha G, my midwife reccomended a small amount of cooled boiled water before each feed to help baby pass motions.

Please note that Reward I mentioned in my previous comment need not really mean an item. it could be an appreciation or encouragement. This can be practiced on other kids too. Need not be a new-born..

For New Mothers.. I have some very good, useful and practical TIPS to make on New born. 1) Be very attentive to their needs. Babies communicates by crying. They cries for very few and honest reasons. He/She might be hungry or feeling hot or thirsty or must have wet the Bed. Please understand that he/ she is not angry about you. Just feels unsafe when no-one attends to it at the first shot. So never allow the cry to go beyond a levelů. 2) Do not feed him/her every half hour or for every CRY. Create a routine of 2 hours. Be honest with yourself and with the baby about that. In between if he/she is crying check for the other possible reasons. Give some water to quench the thirst. Feed them fully when you do that at the slot allotted 3) Do not Hold the baby in your hands for every cry(IF YOU are a person who want to THINK OF FUTURE). Its the easiest solution. But beware. ... 4) They would slowly learn that Crying is not a solution to all problems . Try to solve their problem as a matter of fact when they cries. Other times you can always cuddle them. Believe me you will be very happy.. (Follow negative and positive re-inforcement techniques)- That is at their level -attend to their cry as a matter of fact and reward him/her for every positive sign... 5) Keep talking to them always. Even while feeding. This is for Close bondage 6) Keep light music in the room. This would enhance their brain development. BELIEVE ME U WILL BE HAPPY AT THE END OF THE DAY...

Great article. I'm going to link it to my website which deals with the emotions in the first three months. I also wish I had read this article 3 months ago. Why don't hospitals prepare you for the rollercoaster of emotions just so that you know you are still sane and that it will pass. I'm going to print of this article and post it at every New South Wales, Sydney, Australia hospital.

Thankyou for your excellent article. I am a father of 3 days, and find that much of your comments apply to fathers too. It also helped me see things more from a mother's point of view, which will be of enormous importance when supporting my wife.

My baby is one month old. I am getting used to meeting the demands this role requires. It is good to know that the feelings I have are shared by others. I finally admitted, to myself that I am depressed and very overwhelmed at times. It is also good to know that in time these feelings will pass, and our family bond will grow.

This site and article are helpful even to us "third time mothers". I had my third child 5 weeks ago, and each pregnancy, baby, and after effects are different. There are many days that I am at my wits end, especially since my baby refuses to sleep during the day and I can't seem to get anything done. Not to mention the feelings of depression, not working (I am giving up my career), feeling unattractive, you name it, I am going through it! Thanks again for the information!

My baby is a month old now. I was really into those mood swings. I wasn't exactly in love with my baby either. There were moments of depression! I used to just doze off when the little one wanted to be fed. I got fed up with life. My sleep cycle was going in the reverse!!! I almost wanted to shout my head off!!! Since I was in my mother's place, I missed my husband so much!! I used to want to speak to him in the middle of the night! Everything seemed to go hocus pocus. I really apporeciate this article with which I have sorted out many of my feelings and attitudes. My little boy has captured my heart!!!!

I wish i would have read this when i first had my son. He is almost 3 months old now. I nursed him for 4 weeks. Then my grandmother told me that my milk was not good enough for him. She said that I was starving him and that I am a bad mother for breast feeding him. I stopped. When I found out that I wasn't starving him I attempted to restart breast feeding, unfortunately, my milk was gone.

Hello. I am thoroughly enjoying your website. It is not fair that we Indian women have to use American books/websites/to learn about child bearing and rearing. I am so tired of all the conversions I had to make to suit my ethnicity. However it would be hugely beneficial and appropriate if you used pictures of Indian women and babies on your home page. Even when I go to a baby store in India the walls are plastered with foreign babies which i cannot for a moment relate with. Incidently, I hope you answer questions. My baby is 2 1/2 mths old and has not passed motion for six days and I am nursing him. He also has started to suck his fingers even after a feed. Is my milk insufficient? I press my breasts while feeding to check the mild flow that there always seems plentiful. I have given him all the desi remedies like rasin/date juice, but still no big business. Should I be concerned?

How I wish I had read this article when my daughter was born one and a half years ago. Lots of baby bookks say most of the things this article says, but this is somehow written far more empathetically and realistically, esp the bit about how you find you are reacting to a situation just like your mom would even though you've always felt you wanted to be a completely different kind of parent.

I had a baby a month ago, and I was really happy to read this article because I could identify with many things that were written in it. I now know that it not abnormal to feel depressed and have mood swings.
