It’s so nice to be able to talk honestly with other mothers. I’m so glad you were able to support your daughter in law so much.

Wonderful article. I am a grandmother now. My first born ended in a C-section. A lot of guilt that I didn’t have a vag delivery. Had a few issues, came home twelve days after birth. The lack of sleep with a colicky baby could drive someone right over the edge. At five weeks, hadn’t slept in what seemed forever, middle of the night holding this inconsolable “thing” at arms length woke my husband and told him if he didn’t take this child from me at that moment I thought I might do something that I might regret. He took him from me, I left the room a total wreck now, went down stairs and cried for quite a while. I carried the guilt of not loving that child and wanting to hurt him for so many years. One day at work, one of the girls brought in her little bundle of joy. He was crying and she was almost at the point that I was at. I took the baby, told her to go for a walk. We had a wonderful conversation about the part of having a baby that was NEVER discussed. I don’t know who felt better. HER or me. That day, three years after having my child I found out that I was normal. It was a very enlightening experience. Most of the guilt was gone. My grand daughter and parents lived with us for a long while. When they moved out, my daughter in law said thank you for all the support and thanks for letting me be normal.

It so true that we all bond at different times with our children. What I found made it hard was the tremendous amount of guilt that I felt when I didn’t bond immediately.

I didn’t “bond” with my first for a while…life-threatening complications for me and a short stay in the NICU for her made her seem like a some strange little creature when I finally got to hold her…close to 24 hours after she was born. After hearing all these stories of falling in love instantly with your baby, I was horrified that I felt…bewilderment? But the bonding came, yes it did. It just took some time. And I fell in love all over again when she got older and more responsive…around 9-12 months or so. I discovered that I’m not a “baby” lover, but the toddler/preschool stage? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Wish more moms were told that you can love your child but not particularly love the age/stage they’re at. When my second was born, I was prepared…I bonded faster, since I was healthier after the birth, but still, I fell hardest when her little personality became more evident…at about 9-12 months. 🙂
