Am I being over protective or is it a mom thing?

Last Tuesday (Dec 4th) I gave birth to my first child miss Keira Rose and every since I've not wanted her out of my sight. I don't trust anyone with her (including my husband) unless I'm in the room watching. I wake up in the middle of the night just to make sure she's still breathing and no matter where we go or what we do I see all the dangers and what can hurt her. Is this normal? Will it get any better? Am I just going batshit crazy? Help fellow mommy's!

- I just want to add that no one in my family including my husband are a threat in any way to me or my daughter, I just feel like that having her in my arms is the only place she truly safe.

Welcome to motherhood. LOL. It sounds normal to me. Will it get better? Yes and no. You will always think about all of the dangers, but you will learn that you can't live your life making decisions out of fear.

Its fine, so normal. When i first had my daughter in Feb. this year, when ever she napped in her bassinet or crib i looked in it to check her every 5 mins.

Totally normal. I was the same way with my husband for a while too.

Totally normal. My DD is 17 months. She's never been with anyone but mommy and/or daddy.
