I'm new to the site and nervous about telling my story.
I had my first child in 2009. During my pregnancy o went through a lot of drama with the dad and went into postpartum depression after birth. I didn't get a chance to bond with my baby because I went back to work a week after having a c-section. He was in the care of his father while I worked. At the time we lived with his grandmother that is overbearing and so whenever I got home I had to deal with her. My son has never clinged to me or ran to me like he missed me. He is six years old now and I'm about to have my second child. My oldest doesn't care about the new baby or me. He's attached to his father and grandmother. I am considered a bad mother because I don't have a bond. I love my son and want my son but I don't wanna compete to be a parent. What should I do?
