Q:

I'm a stay at home mom and It's feels like ppd again. My lo is 5 mths, 1 week and become very clingy. I stay in nuclear family with not much support. I really miss my good old days of partying and roaming. Most say it's a phase but don't know what lies ahead. Need some positive vibes and encouragement ladies :(

Hey dear, its alright to feel low... we all go through it... who wants to get up each day, do the same old chores, day in-day out!!! baby does get separation anxiety around this time... since you have no support system, either get the husband to look after the baby for maybe even an hour... if u are bf, express and store while you sneak away for maybe even an hour... or get ur girlfriends to come over and have a good time, baby would sleep for some time during day right? order some food.. you can do this with ur husband too!  no need to be the "perfect" mom all the time... and don't beat yourself up about the things to do and things not done... Things will get better as the baby grows older... take care dear...
