I am a FTM to a 10 week old baby and will be on maternity leave for another 3 weeks. I have come to realize that I don't have what it takes to be a SAHM and counting the days till I go back to work. I feel terrible for feeling this way - like I'm inadequate for not wanting to be home with my baby. I feel like I have classic PPD symptoms when I'm stuck at home all day with her. I used to have a professional full time career and now I find my self at home all day long either nursing, changing diapers, or trying to put a fussy baby to sleep. On the days that I do get out of the house for a little bit, I tend to feel a lot better which has led me to believe that things will get better once I return to work. I am wondering if any of you felt this way while you were on maternity leave and how you felt after you went back to work.
