When you have these feelings of helplessness , just take yourself and daughter for a nice walk if possible. Get out of the house and tap into your calm self that knows her baby and that no matter what the partner does or doesn’t , or how many times the baby smiles at him or not , the mother and baby bond is indestructible . And remind yourself that you brought a life on this planet and that you carried her for 9 months- just this alone puts you in a good place. Wasting any energy you’ve left on focusing on things you cannot control , will only turn a great mother into something else , and I’m sure you don’t want that . I’m so sure that if your baby could speak , she would tell you how much she loves you and how much you mean to her. Sending biiiig hugs your way , lady!!
I was feeling this feeling at one point, I’m sure every mother feels lost with who they are at some point, but it surely does pass that feeling doesn’t stay forever, during having this feeling at one point I just completely broke down into tears and the next day I just woke up feeling like a brand new mum, it gets better you can pull through this, going for walks everyday surely does help, a mother and baby bond definitely is unbeatable although she’s laughing with him I’m sure she feels safest with you, you’ll get through this mama🏻
