    Im constantly questioning myself about everything I do with Seth now and its totally wearing me down. Theres just like this constant load of questions going through my head - mostly about night times and weaning.

    Im a good mum, I know I am, but I cant help thinking that Im doing everything wrong. He is such a good baby, Im very lucky because I know some people have a nightmare time with theirs, but Seth is so good. And that goes in my credit - he wouldn't be so well behaved if he wasn't happy and well looked after right?

    Everyone seems to talk about this 'instinct' that they know what their baby wants and I just don't feel like I have that. Loads of people on here have said to me "your his mum, you know whats best for him", but I really dont feel like I do.

    Does anyone else ever feel like this?

    Sorry for the rant, guess Im just tired or something :sad2: Doesnt really help with OH being sad at the moment as well

    I question everything I do all the time! I hope it's completely normal. Even though I think I know what's best for him I still worry that I should be doing things better/differently. But the fact that he's happy shows that you're doing a great job! :hugs: x

    Hun, you only want what's best for Seth and part of that is questioning what you do. You are a great mother :hugs:
