Yes, most days. Especially when I'm down.
As much as DH says no one could replace me, I sure fell some peoe could do a better job than I do.
Just know your not alone.

Often, and for a variety of different reasons.

Often I do as I suffered PND with my first and I feel utterly ripped off with his first yr of life

Have I felt like that? On occasion, yep but it only lasts a minute or two and then I remind myself that my ds chose me and he is healthy, warm, loved and happy. I must be doing something right. As pp's have suggested, it may be an idea to check for pnd. Hugs to you- a bad mummy wouldn't even question herself. You obviously care and want the best for your little one.

The first few weeks are so are hard and you feel so alone as a new mum.
I hope things look up for you. They did for me but it did take a few weeks.
You are a fantastic mum and I know this from reading your other posts. If you weren't a great mum you wouldn't care so much. You are doing the best job you can and that in turn is the best for your dd. No one else could be a better mother for your daughter. You were meant to be together.
Please don't keep your feelings in. Talk to someone or continue to reach out here, there are some great women here with some great advice.

Some may have read all the bf trouble I've had. I think I'm feeling worse because DD has a belly ache now from the antibiotics i'm on. There's just been everything gone wrong. And now she has to be in pain because of it:

I could have written your post so many times !!! Hang in there (flowers).
I look at my kids today and they are happy & so sure that they are loved that I must have done something right along the way.
Don't worry about the little things & just keep loving them - at the end of the day that's the most important thing you can do for any child xxx

The fact that are you are worried you are a horrible mum means you probably aren't.

How old is bubs?
You just wait till that 6/7 month stage when she will only have eyes for you. It's impossible to feel like a bad mummy when your little creation thinks that you're the bomb!
