Mom guilt? Maybe its cuz I'm a new mom, but I feel guilty for everything it seems like. I feel like if he sits in his bouncy chair for awhile even though he is perfectly happy, I think its too long. If I am holding him and then he gets fussy I feel like its cuz I'm holding him too much and not letting him play enough. When I leave him with dh so I can run errands or do something for me I feel guilty cuz I shouldn't want to be away from him, etc... The list goes on. I was just wondering if I was the only one with mom guilt. Does questioning mommy skills ever end and confidence finally shows up?
My dd is almost 5 months and I still find myself questioning things. She spends most of her day in her swing, her exosaucer, sitting on the couch. I am always doing things around the house. She loves to ist propped up on the couch tho. Even if you have a few kids I am sure that you would still have some questions. Ask the lovely ladies in here if you have some questions or if something is bothering you. Chances are someone in here has had the same question or the same thing happen to them.
I don't anymore so much but used to some in the beginning. I realize now though that babies/kids have personalities and minds of their own and even great parents can't keep them happy or be perfect all the time. I do my best and that is all I can do.
