Stressed mom = stressed baby?
My baby is about 1.5 months old. I've been pretty anxious and stressed about various things since she was born (mainly regarding her health & safety). Combined with the hormones and sleep deprivation, I haven't been super calm and relaxed unfortunately. There have been many emotional breakdowns, anger towards my husband at times, and crazy overwhelming anxiety about various things. There were some days when I looked at her and just wanted to cry because I thought I had damaged her in some way.
I'm going to try extremely hard to chill out moving forward but I'm wondering...do you think this 1.5 months has wired my baby to be more stressed/anxious longterm, or to not form a close attachment with me? Or do you think I haven't caused any lasting effects on her just yet? 😕
