im sick, and my SO is working, my DD is with me here shes 6 months and

i just feel so overwhelmed right now! With being sick, its hard to want to get up and do anything that includes playing with my daughter. I just want to sleep and fight off this sickness...

Does it make me a bad mom to ask my mom or sister to come over and help me take care of my DD?

  • Absolutely not!! You need to take care of yourself and it keeps baby from catching whatever you have. Plus it gives her bonding time with grandma or auntie. If anything it makes you a responsible loving mom. Feel better!!!

  • We all need help sometimes and the really good moms know to ask for it when we can get it.

  • Asking for help when you know you need it makes you a good mom! It would make you a bad mom if you laid on the couch sick and your dd somehow got hurt, or went unfed or unchanged. I think if you have the option to call your mom or sister to come help you, you should!

  • You are very lucky to have someone you can ask for help! Thats what family is for! You are being a good mama! Get some rest and let them help you! I wish I had help like that!

  • I got the flu when my daughter was only 1 mo and my mom came and took her overnight. I felt bad, but I couldn't take care of her. Always ask for help when you need it! That was the hardest lesson I had to learn.
