My daughter is now three and half months old she arrived when I was 36 weeks pregnant she was so tiny and precious.
I get really nervous if anyone is near her or holds her but I only feel like this with people who don't have children themselves.
I find myself very protective of her even sometimes with my partner but that's because he can lose his temper easily. He's a great dad but I just can't help but feel Iike I need to protect her.
Has anyone else felt this way come their premmie and if so how did you deal with it?
Finding it very hard at the moment
I don't think how your feeling is relative to being a preemie mom. Most moms feel that way at one time or another. Though I would be concerned about a "temper" with your husband.
Yes...but not because he was a preemie. He had a really rough start to life, and although he wasn't at all tiny, he was extremely delicate. The fact that he was a preemie was irrelevant I think. I cried...a lot...because my heart ached for him. And nobody else was allowed to do anything for him...because he needed ME. I think it was my way of dealing with the guilt I felt/feel for having to leave him in NICU and not care for him myself, so when he finally came home, I had to do it to make up for it do he knew I loved him
