Hi @autis_mum09,

Welcome to the forum. It sounds like it has been a struggle to adjust to being a mother alongside your own needs. Parenting is so tough and you're still in the stage of getting the hang of things. Is there anything in particular that you're struggling with right now?

Unfortunately our forum caters towards parents of teenagers experiencing mental health difficulties. As your son is 4 months old, our resources and referrals may not be appropriate for you. Do you have any support at the moment? Whether that be family, friends or professional services? We have found this parent and carer's group which might be a helpful service for you depending on where you are located.

Hi

Daniel, 36yo, first time parent.
My wife and I currently have a 3 month old daughter who is wonderful and takes us on a rollercoaster ride. Her smiles, chats and cheeky grin make us smile.
I'm used to dealing with high stress situations, so if they're starting to peak I pop her down, move away for 5 minutes and breathe through whatever is frustrating me.
I'm here because I'm looking for real advice, from people who have gone through it, not just some book that claims to know my child better than we do when every bit of advice is generic.
