Does anyone else feel guilty that their little one isn’t seeing their grandparents and other important people due to these lockdowns?
My little one was born in June and we didn’t let anyone else hold him the first few weeks, then we decided to let his grandparents in the house to hold him and he spent a lot of time with them over the summer and until the recent lockdown.
I’ve followed the rules to the word this lockdown and was really hoping it would only be 4 weeks, now we are in tier 2. It was really beginning to impact my mental health so I was relieved to see that families with a child under 1 could have a support bubble with another family.
We have decided to bubble up with my in laws as they live really close and don’t see their other grand child, whereas my mum who is also close is in a bubble with my sister and my niece as she is on her own.
Part of me feels really guilty as I feel like I am withholding him from her (although we meet for walks), and I just can’t shake that she won’t be able to see him properly maybe until April next year, it makes me feel sick. Am I the only one?
