I feel like I'm being a good mum but in the process of being the best mum I can, I feel like I'm being a crap family member. SIL has just had a baby as well and my DP desperately wants to go to QLD to meet his nephew but DD has reflux and is horrible when out of routine so the idea of going anywhere makes me cringe majorly.
The majority of my family live in the hunter/Sydney area and they haven't met 3 month old DD for the same reason and now one of my sisters is going through a horrible time and I desperately want to go see her and cheer her up but it means travelling with DD. So I feel like me and DD are holding everyone back but then I feel bad like I'm blaming it on her. I know it's not her fault but it's just so hard!
Why must parenthood come with such a huge helping of guilt over every aspect of life?
