I was not able to ever bond with my oldest as a baby (now 4). My next son came just 14 months later. I had such bad PPD, I was in danger of developing PPP, and I had NO help with it, I didn't even know that there was help out there. Once my second son came I was "better" and able to cope. He and I bonded wonderfully and have a great relationship!
But my 4yo and I still don't have one. He has an anxiety issue and I feel like it's my fault. But I don't know how to fix things now. I'm pregnant with number 3 and feel really guilty because I feel on the one hand like she is only going to hinder me from fixing things with my oldest, and on the other because my lil one has really been mommy's baby for 3 years now and I feel like I'm abandoning him... We got pregnant through 3 types of BC, because we were really trying to prevent this, but now that we're here we don't know what to do...
How can I fix things and not make them worse?
