I have miserable days with her. I am constantly yelling at her. Yes maybe she's jelous of the baby but I can't handle her anymore and I am not happy at all. I hate that I have never felt close to her. Feel so hopeless and frustrated.

I'm single so it makes it so difficult to make time for her but i really do try. And she loves to help with the baby she's really good with him.

While daddy is home take your 9 year old out for an ice cream or milk shake or something and leave the baby at home.

Having a new baby can be hard on the whole family. I would recommend setting aside some special time with her daily to create a bond. Even if it is just 1/2 hour. Also, have her start helping...give her simple things she can help with, like grabbing a diaper...or if you are bottle feeding, she can even feed the baby while being supervised. Teach her how to play with the baby on the floor. Remember, she was first and still needs lots of love and attention.
