i feel like my 3 Month old son hates me

Brigett - posted on 12/22/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I hav two beautiful children a little girl who is 21 months and a little boy who is 3 months. I know everyone says every child is different but these two are polar opposites. My little girl from the day she was born always slept through the night and ways always independent (well as much as you can be as a newborn). She hardly had a bad fussy fit. My son on the other hand seems like he is unhappy all the time. He's always crying and screaming. No matter what I do I can never seem to calm him down. I get so overwhelmed that I have to call my dad and his girlfriend or my mother in law to come help. And it seems like as soon as they walk in the door he is the happiest baby. He will be all smiles and talk. It makez me feel like he hates me. Like I'm just the person who carried him for nine months and that's it. I literally have my mother in law take the kids every Saturday night because I get so frustrated and exhausted that I can't function. When I came to pick them up one Sunday she had told me that he had not cried one time since I dropped them off.But as soon as I walked in he started crying. I feel like he prefers everyone over me. I'm already fighting depression and this makes it worse. I have a had a doctor tell me he's colic but I don't think that's what it is. I just can't get over the feeling that he hates me. I don't know what to do...
