My son was born 10 weeks early via emergency c-section. He spent 6 weeks in childrens hospital and has been home almost two weeks. This is my first time caring for a newborn and because of my husbands job I am alone with the baby 4 days a week. I find myself crying everyday when he leaves for work and whenever my son cries.
Everyone talked about this amazing bond I would instantly have with my son, but I am not sure if it is there. I except help, but then find myself feeling guilty that I am not doing the work. Because there was so much stress when he was in the hospital and he has only been home two weeks I am not sure if I am experiencing some sort of delayed baby blues or if this is PPD. I am hoping there are some other preemie moms out there that can give me some insight.
Thank you in advance.
