I will start this off by saying, I have a very supportive family, and I am very close with my mom. That being said, she sometimes drives me crazy. I have had some rough times with DD(I just posted on the 3-6 board about her feeding issues), and have been very stressed multiple times when she has refused to eat, sometimes for days at a time. She even stopped gaining weight at one point. DD has also had two surgeries to her eye for a congenital cataract and has had reflux. So, ya, I do obsess a little about how well she eats. I guess part of it is because she has had a lot of issues so far and I am constantly worrying other issues are going to pop up.
DH works nights so I am home by myself with DD from when I get out of work until when I leave for work the next morning basically when DH takes over. None of my close friends have kids so I feel like I don't have anyone to talk to about it. I tried to talk to my mom last night to tell her I was getting concerned about how little DD was starting to eat and she replied....
"My co-workers daughter brought her baby in and he barely eats, but she doesn't seem concerned." And " I never remember counting how many ounces you ate, I just fed you when you were hungry, I think you're just working yourself up into a frenzy."
Ya, I get that I probably worry too much. But I am a first time mom, I don't always know what to do, and with all these feeding issues, I just want to make sure there isn't an underlying problem. I just wanted someone to talk to and she just made me feel worse. Now I feel like I have no one to talk to about it, and no solutions yet to help DD either (we have been working with the pedi on it).
