: : : Hi Nikki,
: : : I know what you are going through, and you are not alone. I was very depressed after the birth of my son (my first baby). I am not as young as you, but was very anxious about my new role as a mother, and not feeling very confident. For the first three months of my sons life he cried non-stop and it was VERY frustrating, tiring, and stressful. My family was there to help out and support my husband and myself. I went almost everyday in the beginning to my grandmother's for extra help while my husband was at work.
: : : Do you have family to help out??
: : : Also if want advice for soothing your daughter's crying (when she has already eaten, slept), I can give you lots of help in that area.
: : : ALWAYS put your baby in her crib and get away from her when you feel like you're going to snap. I had times when I felt like that. If you want to talk I can email you, if you want.

: : : Nicole

: : thank you so much. i feel much better just after hearing everyones advice tonight. yes, my husband's aunt lives next door, so i can go over there.
