i had open release surgery on both wrists for carpal tunnel. needless to say, i have had 24-7 babysitters for the past 3 weeks for my almost 4 month old son... i have been here the whole time but haven't been able to feed him, change him, bathe him or hold him much really until recently. i tried but kept hurting myself, even tore a few stitches. now i am close to healed and back to being full time mommy and he just seems mad at me! i can't get him to smile at me, he is very fussy. i have no energy and still am hurting but am working through it. it makes me sad, i wonder is he detatched from me? he was so happy with the babysitters but with me just doesn't seem to want me to take care of him. what do you ladies think?

i think it may take some time to build up the bond but keep at it it will be worth it in the end he will come round. keep smiling
