Feel isolated and alone with your new baby?

Do you have a partner, but they may not offer the support you need, or be home enough for what you need?

Do you have plenty of family around, but don't feel like you can call on them when you are feeling down or struggling?

Have you moved to a town where you really don't know many people, and none close enough to call on?

Do you have friends but they all have their own 'stuff' going on and you don't want to add to that?

Do you feel like you should be coping and able to do this parenting role and don't want to tell anyone else of your feelings?

Have you asked for help but don't want to keep asking?

The truths of having a second child

You have had your first child, you have all survived and learnt a lot along the way. Adding a second child shouldn't take as much adaption, or should it?

Sorry to those that had a hard time with their first child, but I breezed through the first year of my eldest child's life. Although 6 weeks prem, her development was spot on, she had good routines and a very placid nature. In fact I got bored and went back to study.
