    I'm expecting my first in 4 weeks so have no experience in this, but the first thing you need to do is put the baby safely in her cot and walk away and calm down. Stay away until you can go back and deal with her safely. Go outside where you can't hear her if you have to. While she is in her cot she will be safe without supervision for a while, even if she's screaming. Do you have someone else around to help?

    Also, it is probably a good idea to get some professional help for this. You obviously realise it is a problem or you wouldn't have posted. Please go and speak to somebody. I don't doubt that you love your baby, but it sounds like you could be a danger to her at the moment. You don't want to get angry and do something you regret. You owe it to yourself and your family to get some help. Best of luck

    As someone who has two kids I can tell you it's completely normal to feel this way. I and most of my friends who have kids confess to this happening. So don't feel that it reflects on your love of her. It's just a matter of figuring out how to control the anger and not act in a violent manner etc. I think the above post was right about walking away. It won't hurt her to stay in her cot for a bit by herself, even if she is really upset.

    I know when my babies have screamed/cried, it's like an uncontrollage emotion I have. Some kind of chemical thing, it's amazing how much it stresses me out.
