View Full Version : could this be PND?
can you get PND towards your first born, rather then the new baby? (now sorry if i have a completely wrong understanding of postnatel)
but i fell... detatched (sp?)... from my first son....
Sorry I can't help you with this... Lucky for me I didn't suffer PND with my bubba, but I hope you are feeling better soon:hugs:
Hi, I have PND. It usually occurs after the birth of a baby and affects the way you act and communicate with everything/one around you equally. It can occur up to 2 years after the birth, but it doesn't sound like you have PND to me. It sounds more like a bonding issue with your eldest child. Speak to someone about it to be on the safe side, but PND usually refers to a new baby.
thanks thats what i thought.. he is going through a... testing... stage.. so its make it hard for me to cope with that.... being a whole new thing....
I know, that you must be feeling very strange. I had my DS2 when DS1 was 15 months old, and it has actually taken 6 months for my relationship with DS1 to get better, now we are best buddies again. I think its really hard to accept the almost "guilt" feeling that they aren'y your ONE & ONLY, and it takes time to learn how to "share" the love and attention. And it's huge for the toddler, Cruz wouldn't give me the time of day for about 3 months, I thought it was just me, but it was him, just figuring out where he stood with me in the grand scheme of things, and now he is fine, he LOVES his brother to bits and cannot sto cuddling me! Hope it gets better for you. Feel free to PM me
judging by the age of ds1 i would say its more to do with the stage he is going thru than pnd. My dd is 3 and i know that there are a lot of times i dont like her very much because of the way she is acting.
Factor a new baby into the equation and you would be less inclined to put up with the tactics of a nearly 3 year old.
If your at all in doubt, talk to your gp or mothercraft nurse.
