I'm 19 years old and just had my first son 2 months ago. 4 days after he was born his daddy, my fiance, left for navy boot camp and I've been taking care of the baby all by myself since then. I really miss my fiance and tend to stress out a lot when the baby is crying and he isn't here to help me, it feels like he abandoned me when I needed him the most. Does anybody have any advice for how to cope with caring for the baby while the dad is thousands of miles away and you don't have very much contact?
