I have a 6 month old son he's my first! He gets up in the morning around 6 or 7am when my husband goes to work and is soo energetic! I just dont have the energy though. He plays on the floor or in his walker and he'll cry till I look at him. I try to play with him but like most kids he has way more energy than his parents. I want to play with him when he wants to play but I just aint got it in me. I feel as if this makes me a bad mom. I give him everything he wants except ALL my attention. Is there any other moms who feel the same or is something wrong with me.

Nap when he naps! I still have days that I have to nap when my 2 1/2 year old does.

I like playing with him and play with him for a while but he just wants me to all the time and I cant all the time.

My daughter is pretty good about entertaining herself(especially for an 8 month old).....I have such a hard time getting myself up and moving in the morning. But I find that if I get up and get myself ready for the day and start doing dishes and what-not that I have more energy and I am in a better mood. You gotta get yourself up and moving! Maybe try some exercising(take a walk) in the morning. If the issue is worse than just being sluggish then maybe you have post-partum depression....it can happen anytime within the first year of having a child. If so you should talk to your doctor....I hope that is not the case.
