Losing confidence in rearing my child

Halley - posted on 02/14/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am a first-time mum. My son just turned one year-old. He is a happy kid; only cries when he wants to keep on playing and/or hungry. Before I got pregnant, I wanted to 'do everything' for my son--introduce handmade toys and educational materials. I have done some of this stuffs, but lately I am getting tired and easily irritated. I can't identify the source of my frustration. I also keep having thoughts of 'halting everything' so I can move on with my own life. I thought I was just miss having work and having time for myself and doing things at my own pace. Maybe I just want a day-off. But this thought also kinda makes me feel guilty. I want to end this cycle. Any advice will be highly appreciated.

If you want a day off, stop feeling guilty and just do it. Pack him a diaper bag, some toys, take him to a trusted friend or relative, and get yourself some peace of mind.
Your son will be better for this. When you take care of you, you are better able to take care of him. Dont be ashamed thay you have needs.
