Depressed because my baby is growing up

Does anyone else get depressed when their baby grows out of things? This week we had to retire our infant car seat and swing, I also had to put away some 9 month clothes that I really liked. We had to move he up to a convertible car seat and I have to buckle her in at every stop. I miss the convenience of the infant seat, and I miss her being so little in the seat. My baby is growing up and there's nothing I can do about it. It's making me so depressed! Am I the only one?

Growing babies are bittersweet.

 I feel the same way, but I also get excited about what each new stage brings as well.

Not me.

Try to look at it in a postive way.  Your child is growing and healthy.  Your baby has made it this far!
