Hey ladies. I'm a young single mom of an 8 month old baby girl who's finding it difficult to bond with my child. I don't like playing with her, I don't understand how to soothe her, and when she's upset I get resentful and angry that her father isn't the one dealing with it (he assaulted me so I sent him to jail.) I feel like the worst mother on earth, because I really do love her. Please don't beat me up in your answers, I was just wondering if anyone had been through this and if it gets better. I think I might have postpartum because I am prone to depression. Thank you, and I hope you're all having a great day.Answer Question

Well first of all, You need to get help before you do something stupid and possibly harm your baby! She didnt ask to come into this world, and didnt ask for you to be her mother! I dont understand how an 8 mth old doesn't bond with their mother, they are most needy then! Being a mother is self-less, you have to put your child first regardless of your issues with your baby daddy or anything else in your life, are you even willing to do that? You need to go talk to a councilor and or a doctor asap!
