Like is she eating enough? is her health ok?..... i constantly have anxiety when night time comes, knowing i have to go to bed cause im constantly worried something might happen to her... i check if she is breathing & im just constantly worried about her.... i feel crazy because of how much i worry.... i am very fearful of death because of losing both of my parents at a young age.... i just dont know how to cope with this anxiety i have.... & im up with her everyday & at night... SO isnt..... Im a first time mom and just need some advice on how to cope & if other moms went through this...
I feed her every 3 hours, sometimes more & sometimes less.... no more than four hours though....

Yea I agree, you are fine. We all feel like that. I felt like that with my first (5yrs ago) and with my second (two months ago). The first few weeks are hard on everyone even harder on first time moms. Just learn to breathe and sleep when your baby sleeps. Let the house work go and take care of the baby and yourself. Don't be afraid to ask for help from family.
