Re: Nightmares

As I mentioned in another post, I have had a dream a few times where I would just be sitting around the house and realize I had forgotten about the baby (who never cried) and didn't know how long it had been since I fed him or paid attention to him. It's like I forgot I even had a baby. Well, when I go to check on him, he's sitting in a carrier on the sofa in the other room with an empty bottle beside him. I picked up the bottle to see if it was empty, and it was almost empty but the milk was all soured and lumpy and curdled. I've woken up near tears, too. In my dream, I had a beautiful baby, but I think I'm just scared to death of being a bad mother, since this is my first, and I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing.
