My newborn son is six months old and I can’t help but resent him | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: LOOKING at my son’s baby scan, I couldn’t wait to become a dad but he’s six months old now and I can’t help but resent him.

I know it’s not his fault, but I feel shut out. I’m 26 and my girlfriend is 27

If I try to soothe him, she appears hovering over me, ready to tell me how to do it better.

We hardly spend any time together as a couple now.

I feel so guilty for admitting it but I’m starting to wish we hadn’t had a baby.

This isn’t what I imagined.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your son is still tiny, and having a baby turns parents’ lives upside down.

What you are feeling is not uncommon for new fathers who often feel shut out by their partner.

Spending time with your son will help you bond.

It’s important you and your partner are there to support each other.

Talk to her and explain how excluded you feel and ask to look after your son while she has a bath or a nap.
