Has anyone else felt this way

I gave birth to my 2nd baby a month ago.While i was in the hospital my 4yr old stayed with my mil for over a week. Ever since he came home i've had trouble connecting with him.Ilove him,but their are times he seems like a stranger to me.I feel like i've lost the bond i had with him.He has high functioning autism and has alot of tantrums so it kind of makes it worse.

  • My sister felt like that a little. When she gave birth, her husband would often take care of her 3 year old daughter so she could take care of the new baby. She said sometimes she felt like "she wasn't her little girl anymore". Don't worry, it will come back!
