    I am a bad mum.

    My 1 year old is driving me mad. He throws tantrums all the time if I stop him doing something. He often bites and pinches me too. He whines at me constantly and pulls at me to pick him up but once I've picked him up, he won't sit still. He pulls at me, tries to grab stuff, and acts, well, like a 1 year old! I feel like I can't be in the same room as him. He doesn't do that with anyone else.

    My friends keep telling me to stop breastfeeding him but I'm not ready.

    This morning I ended up yelling and swearing at him to go away. He hurts me and this morning I just lost it.

    I feel like crap. I just want to go back to bed and stay there all day. I can't believe I yelled at him.

    I lose patience easily. I find it difficult to focus on activities with my children. I'd rather take them to a park because then I can have a coffee and sit on my phone while they burn themselves out. I used to love reading to them but now I can't be bothered. I don't care about play doh or dressing up. I just want to curl up in a ball. I'm constantly telling them to "go and play" (they're 18mths and 3). Today I yelled at them to shut up. Three times. They had been fighting, whining, I'd had no sleep and I just lost it. They were terrified. So was I.

    They hardly sleep and I don't get a break and I feel so incredibly jealous of other people's calm, napping toddlers that it makes me angry at my own

    My marriage is ending and everything I'm feeling seems to be coming through in the way I parent and I can't help it. I'm so worried the babies I've made already hate me.

    My 3 year old said to me today 'please stop being angry mummy'. But I don't know how to. I just can't wait to put them to sleep so I can stuff my face and cry.
    Big hugs. I look back as that age being the absolute hardest so far for me. They're now 5 almost 4 and 7m but those first few years where HELL. Can you get a break from them? I worked three days a week and that's what kept me sane.

    What a great thread...i feel very comforted.

    My shameful secret occurred when ds was nine months old and we were in a mother baby unit where I was being treated for bipolar disorder/ post natal psychosis. I was holding ds and he was crying. All I wanted to do was help him stop, but he was frantic', and soon I started crying too. Dh offered to take him but I refused. I was his mother, I should know what to do. I was sobbing so dh went and got the nurses. They tried to take him from me but I refused and screamed at them to stay away. I held ds tighter and tighter. Then the nurses held me down and ripped ds from my arms. I was frogmarched back to my room and shouted at, told I was being selfish and hurting my baby. I felt like the worst mother in the world, and that ds would be better without me. I lay in bed thinking of suicide, scared to leave my room.

    I know I was sick, but I still can't forgive myself. I will never forget how it felt to have my baby ripped from my arms.
