Feelings of inadequacy

Chuck @ 10 weeks

Is it normal to feel as though you're not enough for your child? I've been wondering lately if I am providing enough of what Charlie needs. Am I providing him with enough stimulation? Am I interesting enough for him? Am I teaching him the right things? Why don't I know more nursery rhymes? Am I helping him to develop in the right way?

I can't really answer the questions above, and I guess it's common for new-moms to question themselves. I just hope that my boy is happy.

Here's what I do know;

I am providing Charlie with more milk than he could ever wish for.
am allowing my boy to sleep whenever he so desires [hopefully this is a good thing].
am giving him cuddles and kisses in the bucket load.
I do love him more than anything.

  3. Thank you!! We don't do things by the book [his choice not mine] but we manage pretty well and so long as my boy is happy I'm happy. We do enjoy our time together but sometimes I do wonder if I could be doing more for him, somehow. I guess that's part of being a mama though..

    I saw your little boy on your site and, my oh my, he is a sweetheart. Loving the look of some of those toys he has too [bouncer, walker]. Awesome.
