How attached are you to your baby? I have a 2 month old and ghee! I dont think i can live without him!When i close my eyes his smile and giggle flashes my mind. I would even sneak to his room and touch him softly and watch as he sleeps. Its amazing to be a mother!!!

When I first had my son I was too tired to be attached but now I am. My husband and I are separated so my son is my little bed buddy. I can't imagine life without him! congrats on your 2 month old. I have a six month old and it feels like he was just 2months old!

I was the same way with my kids. They are just so needy and dependent at this age. I am pregnant now and I can't wait to meet the little guy.

I agree it is amazing to be a mom. I have one daughter who is 17 months, close to 18 months now i guess. And i still watch her sleep sometimes, Especially now that she can walk and has so many more facial expressions. Newborn was a good, but as they get older and can communicate better with you and start to learn new things everyday, its even better! cause you can teach them things and they learn it SO FAST, its amazing! however the tempertantrums are not so fun, she's only had one fairly loud uncontrollable one so far, and i hope it was the first and last one!

Yes, I still do that with my 10 month old sneak in and watch him sleep and just lightly rub his soft skin. I could not picture a day with out or waking up to that big smile and him calling mama im up.

Everything you are saying is completely natural (for most) and healthy. I do the nightly room checks before I go to bed still and mine is 2 years old. The trick is to not let them know exactly how attached you are! Make sure they know you love them and that you'd do anything for them. But let them know just how bad you've got it and they'll never leave home haha. Especially the boys. Its great that you feel that way about your little one. Some people really don't (especially at 2 months). I can't imagine how you could feel any other way but you'd be surprised. I have heard people say some horrible things about their children.

I would hope you'd be attached to your baby. That's the purpose to be attached to them so that they can be taken care of and be able to survive. It's biology and evolution. If mother's weren't attached to their babies the human race might not survive.
