My son Corey just turned 6 weeks old. I was induced 2 weeks early because I didnt have enough fluid. He weighed 4lb 10oz. He weighs almost 7 now! Anyways, I have been feeling paranoid about EVERYTHING! A few examples- I dont want anyone else to feed him b/c they might not do it right,or burp him enough. Or, I dont like when other people hold him b/c what if they dont support his head enough,or bounce him to hard or to much.I dont like when people touch him if i'm not there to watch them wash their hands.The list goes on and on. I know thats ridiculous. I know that my friends and family know what they are doing. At this point, not only am I annoying everyone around me,but I think I am starting to annoy myself! lol.My mom isnt around these days so I have no one to ask these things to. Me and my boyfriend (who is great) are learning everything on our own as we go. I have also been feeling extremely depressed. Not just the baby blues type, but really depressed. How long will this last? Next week I have to go back to work. I am completely freaking out. I not only have to leave him for 8 1/2 hours a day, but I have to trust other people around my baby. Why is this so hard? Am I the only one feeling like this?
