Im so sad bc my family treat my 6 month old diffrent than my brothers 1 year old.... my sisters and parents go over my brothers house to see him often... since my sons been born they come to see him 8 times!!....(but because i noticed they dont come I have gone over on weekday and weekends to see my fam with my baby).. my bros baby gets incredible toys and clothing for gifts... i noticed they give my baby gifts in broken boxes and cheap looking toys..dollar bill type?! ... when ever I do come over they dont hold my baby as much and in the same fun/loving way they do when they hold my bro baby.... I know they pay more attention to detail when my bro baby around bc the other day my mother wet my babys face and didnt put cream on his face when i told her the care for his skin type...(my baby has EXZEMA a real bad case where his entire face and body is covered in red blothches and oozing skin (witch ive been treating)
Ive been so sad that they dont come and see him or hold him in the same manner (mabie bc his exzema?) but i still cry for my son bc i dont see the same love that they have for my bro baby in my son...I stopped coming over for 1 month now and they dont call or come.... i made a coment to them about all this to them....THEY DECIDED TO COME OVER AND TAKE MY BABY FOR THE NEXT TWO DAYS..JUST THE BABY...I Politely told them he doesnt really know u guys to be without his mom...he started crying when they insistently took him from my arms...I told them do you know how he sleeps? how to care for the exzema how much he eats, what makes him laugh?... they didnt...they got upset and ackwardly quiet and left and said" well dont say we didnt try to help you" and walked out... I came the next 2 days in an effort so they get to know my son, but in those two days they didnt hold my son or even play with him or talk to him...nothing! On the second day I went home crying for my son bc I really feel that they just dont care about my baby.
I dont know how to feel about this... I had a csection and my family didnt even offer to help me...it was rough!... they came once! to see me then...I dont understand?! what should I do? how should I feel? (I talked to them about this but nothing happens...they stay ackwardly quiet about it and pretend nothing is wrong?
