Hi I had my daughter 10 months ago I also have 3 boy that are school age.

I don’t like leaving my daughter with anyone even her father I feel as if she is safer with me even though there has never been any worry but I don’t trust anyone with her. I live my life around her and sometimes I feel like I’m leaving my other children out I don’t mean to but my boys have been mucking up since I have has her they think I don’t care about them but I really do I love them more then anything.

Please help what should I do. I have anxiety and depression aswell

  • Go see your gp


  • I hope the GP has been able to help you. Having a girl after 3 boys I guess can be daunting, but remember your boys need there Mum time too.


  • It definitely sounds as though you have the presence of mind to recognise that there may be a problem. I’d definitely talk to a professional about it and well done in being brave enough to talk about it.


  • I hope you get some support from a professional just to talk things thru.


  • Yes, talk to your GP as a start and think about seeing a counsellor. The first step is recognising that you need help. A counsellor can help with strategies for your anxiety.


  • Sometimes we do baby the youngest, I fell into this trap. I would visit your GP hun ESP with the depression & anxiety. Sounds like you need some support :)

    • Support, guidance, and a friend to listen.
