Hi moms,

need some advice. I am a first time mom had my baby boy in January of this year. I am dealing with a huge life transition becoming a mom, being on maternity leave and without work for the first time in nearly 15 years and I do believe that I am suffering from some post partum sadness due to the change in lifestyle. I am confident I will bounce back but what is really affecting me is that some of my direct family members are coming across as very judgemental. Some comments and advice that are coming my way are making me feel incompetent and like a poor mother. Even my husband has made some comments lately that are throwing me for a loop and making me feel that I am not doing as good of a job as I am trying to do. I love my son and am doing the best job I can, can anyone relate to my situation? and can anyone give advice on how to address this issue with family members. I have tried to express how it makes me feel and request that family be cognizant of how it makes me feel but it is still ongoing. Any and all advice is welcome and appreciated. Thank you
