My 2lb preemie is growing and I'm devastated?! Seperation Axiety questions as well!!
My son was born three months early and was 2lbs when he was born. He is now almost 10 months and he is getting so big! Eating a ton of baby food, and just really thriving....he's lean and long and growing before my eyes....So my question is, why am I so sad??
I feel like I missed something, like I blinked and just now realized how much my once tiny little baby has grown! I should be thrilled especially seeing as he was SO small when he was born and in the nicu for months....so why do I feel so sad, like I'm losing my baby?? Am I crazy?!?!
Second question (sorry ladies, a lot on my mind today:-)
My son also has developed seperation anxiety. Not too extreme, but it's there. Myself and my son live in the same house as my parents right now, so he is use to having different people always doting on him, but if my father is holding him, and he sees my put on my shoes, he starts to cry and reach for me....I'll admit, I am a new mom, and I have no idea how to handle this (so please keep that in mind in your responses, don't be mean:-( )
I've tried kissing him and letting him see me before I leave, and now lately I've been trying to just avoid letting him actually see me leave and I'm not sure if I'm doing the right thing....any suggestions??
Hope you lovely ladies are having a wonderful day :-)
