I want you to know that it's normal to push your older child away when you have  anew baby. It's normal to feel at times like you dislike them. That they are taking precious time away from your new little one. It's normal to need to get away from them for their own safety.

It's normal to go from weeping to yelling. And it's normal to be irritated by everything- down to someone looking at you the wrong way.

I want you to know that it can last a long time, I am still in the process of trying to overcome it myself. I want you to know that it's okay if you feel like you can't do it anymore and you need to call somebody. Sometimes just a drive around the block or going outside for a minute can help...

I want you to know that it's okay to set your baby down in a safe place and go get some fresh air- crying won't hurt them.
