I am 28yo & my mum passed away (quite suddenly to cancer) when I was 24yo. My dad lives overseas, but he comes to visit once a year. My daughter is 3mths old now.
I just find it so hard not having a partner or either parent around sometimes & just wish I had that maternal/paternal support. And at other times I just wish I could have one of those motherly hugs, only a mum knows how to give. I hug my daughter so much and tell her I love her every time I put her down, be it in her cot, capsule or pram, or anywhere actually! There is this little part of me that is so worried if something happens to me that she will be all on her own.
