My daughter was born at the start of febuary. I really can't seem to bond with her and I get extremely frustrated when she cries. When her mum takes her she stops immediately leaving me very upset and wondering what am I doing wrong. We also have a 7 year old daughter whom I have an outstanding and brilliant relationship with. So, I naturally assumed that I would be the same with Shannon. But I could not have been more wrong. Nothing I do helps, I cant even do night feeds my wife seems to be doing everything and when I offer to help she wont let me, because she knows that I get very easily frustrated. It really is affecting me a great deal making me feel useless and not a good dad, but I dont let on to my wife just how much its affecting me, as I know it will upset her. Im almost at my wits end.
