I have a 9 week old DD and When I'm out and about (which has not been very often) I look at other mothers and their little babies and they all seem so relaxed as do most of the bubbas. Me on the other hand is the whole time thinking "Is she too hot/cold? Can I get this done before she wakes up? Where can I feed her if she gets hungry? Geez I hope she doesn't get upset!" I dont really find outings fun or relaxing at this stage.
It doesn't help that at 9 weeks she has already had a chest infection which led to Bronchiolitis and is still all snuffly- without this I think I might be less anxious!
Is it just me that thinks like this? I'd love to be more relaxed!
Oh, and everyone is always ready to give advice when she does get unsettled and while it is always given with the best intentions and some is actually helpful and given with love, some just makes you feel like they either they don't think you know what your doing or is quite belittling- just making me more uncomfortable really.
