      Hi dads my wee fella was born three weeks today my mrs has breast fed since then bar one night when she let her hair down so I had milk that she left me. I have a wee girl with my partner and a step son who’s just mine as well and that’s that. My question is my wee fella crys when he’s with me and that’s fine baby’s cry the fact is it gets so bad sometimes I feel it in my stomach and can’t help crying in no wee lad or soft in any means not that there’s anything wrong with that but I literally cannot control it. I feel useless at that time bear in mind I’m a mental health support worker. I was tg3 same with my wee girl 7 years ago but this is a different level I feel useless even knowing it not my fault feel like I’m going nuts.

      Hey mate, hope you’re good? My little one has just turned 6 months and I was completely the same in the first few weeks as you described. I felt as soon as I was passed her or picked her up she went from happy to crying in the space of a few seconds. Now though, she’s completely fine. She loves a cuddle from dad!

      I put it down to the very strong bond between mum and baby but also I was over thinking it. I think our little one could pick up on me feeling nervous or tense when holding her. I know it might sound silly but as soon as I learnt to properly relax and take a deep breath when she was having a major cry she settled a lot quicker.

      Definitely for me it took me a while to fully understand ‘sometimes babies just cry’, I was always convinced something was wrong but sometimes there just isn’t.

      For me it was all about trying to remain positive, focusing on being calm and reassuring for the baby when she was crying and remembering it will always pass.

      Hope some of that might help?

      Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) is a type of medication known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that is used to reduce the production of stomach acid. It is commonly prescribed for conditions such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), erosive esophagitis, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, which are conditions that involve excess stomach acid production.

      If you are struggling with feelings of being useless or any other emotional concerns, it’s important to seek support from a qualified healthcare professional, such as a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist. They can provide you with appropriate guidance and support tailored to your specific needs.

      It’s also important to remember that medications like Dexilant are prescribed by qualified healthcare professionals after a proper evaluation of your medical condition, and should be taken as directed by your healthcare provider. They are not intended to address emotional or psychological concerns, and it’s essential to discuss any emotional or mental health issues you may be experiencing with a qualified healthcare professional who can provide appropriate support and guidance.

      If you’re struggling with feelings of worthlessness or any other emotional concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. You are not alone, and there are resources available to support you. Your healthcare provider can help determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
