I'm starting to become a crazy mom. In the beginning I didn't feel very attached. I felt like I was the same person, just now with a baby. But suddenly over the past few days, I've had these overwhelming feelings of never wanting to leave her and always wanting to be there to comfort her when she needs. DH is a very active and helpful dad. So when DD got her shots at her 2 month doc appointment yesterday, he held her and snuggled her to comfort her right after. Normally, I would have smiled and appreciated how great of a dad he is, but crazy mom me sat there impatiently with my boob hanging out ready to grab her from him and comfort her by nursing. I'm also suddenly appalled by the idea of giving her a bottle just because we may be out in public with mixed company even though that's what we've always done (DH gives her the bottle). Now I just want to nurse her every time even if it means excusing myself from the group. Oh... And I'm seriously considering a working from home opportunity even though I had full intentions of going back to work. I'm a hopeless mess in love with my child!
Ok so what does FFFC stand for?
My mom keeps telling me to put my LO down and let her cry. She says I'm spoiling her by holding her or going to her when she's crying. Umm she's 3 months old and she's my kid. I am choosing to raise her my way. I have two older kids and they are just fine. My mom gets mad saying she let us all cry and we turned out just fine. Yeah um no if I feel that I need to be there for my daughter and I hold her to give her comfort and security then I am going to hold my kid.
