Hoping another mother feels as I do. I have a DS who is 3 and a DD who is 6 months. I have been dealing with post natal depression but am feeling better. I just feel like a terrible mom because I have since having my DD not been able to play with my DS the way I used to. And I have been letting him watch more TV. ??????? Don't know what to think??

From what you describe, you have baby blues not postpartum depression. the reason i say this is because it is getting better.

As far as your problem with not spending as much time with your 3 year old, find the time. When the baby naps that time is for you two. Strap the baby to you and go for a walk together. Lay on the floor and color while you let the baby play on the floor right next to you. As the baby gets older it will be easier to play with them together.
