    Default Scared to be alone

    I have posted in another area in regards to ds having reflux which i feel is the root of the anxiety as i am scared to be alone with my 2 boys espcially when it comes to feeding ds who is 6 weeks old with reflux. I have been to the doctor to have a mental health plan put in place and has referred me on to another doctor but i can't get into see her until april. Dont stress i still feed him but i know i panic whilst doing it and if possible i try and get someone else to do it

    Does anyone have any tips in regards to this or has anyone been through similar

    thank you in advance

    Whatever you do, try your best not to avoid feeding him. You will get yourself in a nasty cycle of not being able to do it if you avoid it.

    i know where it stems from as i had a really bad pregnency and labour which is a long story and having to rely on everyone for the first 2 weeks of his life becuase i couldn even look after myself i had to have eberything done for me too and now with the reflux i am at my wits end with no confidence and stress the whole time

    Default Scared to be alone

    I just wanted to say you aren't alone. I suffered anxiety attacks with DS1. I can't recall exactly what changed or when but it passed.

    I'm shocked you can't see someone until April??? Can you get a referral to someone else in the meantime

    Can you perhaps speak to the hospital where bubs was born. Some hospitals will readmit mums for help.

    When i was breastfeeding My ds he would poo blood if I ate something he was allergic too and the anxiety was extreme. I used to have a panic attack every time I changed his nappy. And if there was blood in his nappy I used to break down in guilt and just cry and cry. I fell pregnant with dd when ds was just 3 months old and when she was born and had allergies as well I fell into deep depression. I had a 2 week stay in a mother and baby post natal depression ward in hospital and had to take medication. 2 years later I'm fully recovered but it gave me an insight into mental illness. PND and anxiety is an issue I hold very close to my heart. Your not alone. X
