I am sorry you are going through this. Do you have any help! Have you talked with your DR about this?

My baby was 3 months before all of a sudden it just clicked. It's not only that you are starting over again, it's all the unknowns because you never had a boy. Calm down Mama, this too shall pass. You have boy, you are done having kids, enjoy your last bundle of joy, your last crawl, your last first bath, your last first steps, instead of worrying about the "what ifs" cherish the firsts and the lasts of having a baby.

Hope you're getting help from friends and family. Have you spoken to your doctor about your bonding issues?

Congrats on your newborn baby!  Though it sounds like you're having a really tough time adjusting, be encouraged to not give up!  Parenting in general isn't easy, but hold-on...you can do it!  There's an article that may help you (http://bit.ly/2sRePvx) through the depression and anxiety.  Blessings to you and your family :)

What do you mean when you say you are having trouble bonding?  I guess I don't really understand what that means in practical terms.
