I hope that I can explain this clearly so that you can understand where I am coming from. My son will be 13 when I have my new baby and we are all very excited about the baby but I can't help but feel like I will not love and bond with this child as I did with my first. With my first son it was always just him and I and we have such a close bond and we get along so well and have such a blast with each other and I think that is because it has always been just the two of us. Now that I am married and am having another baby and I just don't see how I could ever be that close with the new baby. This will be my husbands first child and I know that he will be completely hands on and I won't have as much time with the baby. Also, I have a much better job now so we have decided to send this baby to daycare. So there is even more time out of the day that I will not have to bond with the baby. When I had my first child I became a nanny so that I could spend the first 2 years with him. With this baby I will only have 3 months. I just scared that I won't bond with and love this baby as much as my first son. Am I totally hormonal? Has anyone else been through this?
