baby prefers others over mum

Baby prefers others over mum

Q&A: My baby is 10 weeks old and I feel like he doesn’t prefer me to others. I’ve never been overly maternal so I don’t know if he picks up on this! He is breastfed with a formula before bed which his dad feeds him. My Aunty looks after him once a week for a few hours while I shop and it seems he smiles and loves being with her more than me. It has pretty much always been this way, it’s not a stage. Anyone else feel like this?

Overcoming fear of miscarrying again

Q&A: I found out yesterday that I had miscarried. I was 5 weeks. Hubby and I had been trying for this one (#2) for a while so we were over the moon when we found out we were pregnant. How do we overcome the shock? I’m really struggling but hubby is struggling a lot more than I thought he would. I’m trying to stay strong for him but inside I’m dying. How can I grieve and be there for him? We are both now too scared to try again. How do people overcome this fear that it may happen again?

Dealing with traumatic labour

Q&A: My first son is 19months and I had a very traumatic labour, I had to be hooked up to the heart monitor as his heart rate kept dropping, and I ended up having an episiotomy and forceps delivery as after 2 hours of pushing he wouldn’t even. It was horrible, painful and messy and I suffered PND afterwards. I’ve just found out I’m pregnant with baby number 2. Hubby and I are both very excited but I keep having panic attacks when I think about labour. I’m just wandering if anyone has advice on how to get through this pregnancy and labour a little calmer? I am very worried and scared, and I am also thinking maybe I should just elect for a c section?

Considering abortion

Q&A: My husband and I just found out that we are pregnant with baby No.2. Baby no. 1 is 14 months at the moment. We always thought that we will have another baby when she is 3 years old. But it has happened now. My husband is the go with the flow person. But I like to be practical. The cons have outweighed the pros and I was really not happy when the home pregnancy test was positive. I would like to know what other mums views are on abortion and has anyone been in this situation before. Please no judging. I’m desperate for some advice.

Coping with abortion

Q&A: Just wondering how any of you women coped with having a termination/abortion done. Did it hurt after having it done or did you have any complications?
