I don't need bashing I need advice and help. I love my son, but we did not bond. His birth was horrible, I gave birth in a military hospital and they were rushing me i tore because of being rushed and he was in the NICU due to fluid in his lungs. I was sewn up wrong and i was in agony to even walk ot lay down. I had PPD was given Paxil (worst medicine ever for me) I was drinking alot after his birth I wanted to kill myself. My husband was very supportive. I would let my son cry it out alot. If he was hungry I would put his bottle on the floor if he wanted it he would get it. Alot of tv to distract him. When he was 18 months I gave birth to my daughter. I did not get PPD with her, also my ruined vagina was fixed. I felt less pain after giving birth to my daughter that day then i had for the past 18 months the doctors had fixed me up :) I breast fed her, my son didn't take to nursing. I at first that my daughter was my favorite. But we have this deep bond, I would say the umbilical cord is still attached. I love both my children but I find my son annoying and bothersome, I feel a gush of overwhelming love when my daughter enters the room my son I'm just meh...I HATE THIS! I want a bond wit hmy son why don't I have it?! How do I get IT?! My children are 4 and 5 nowAnswer Question

The problems associated w/ his birth & the PPD after were not this child's fault. You do realize that right? I think counseling is a great start. Next, spending some fun time w/ your son would be helpful. Learning to play w/ him & enjoy his company, his sense of humor, his little hugs, etc. GL
