Welcome to JP - I was also afraid to go out, but you need to get over your fears, even if you just start by going for a walk to the end of the road...its the first step that counts.

Sounds like your baby may have a touch of colic (arching the back can be a sign of painful wind bubbles), I found colief to be really good. Its a bit expensive, but worked for us - gripe waters supposed to be good also, but never worked for my DD.

i have infacoil that normally works but havent given any today.

I feel safe in my flat and have been able to go to baby clinic but not on my own. I have too many memories of being mugged when i was younger and have moved away to a small villiage, its safer but still scared!

Im not too good at meeting new people either but would like to go to a baby massage class!

hi Emmie welcome to the site I'm Jo age 24 mum to Eloise age 6 and JR age 2.

So sorry to here about what happened to you Sad Face but on a better note congratulations on the birth of your baby.

Could you have a word with your health visitor maybe she could get you in touch with some mums the same age with babies and you could go to baby massage together.

Em,
Babies move and turn in to many ways to count. At two months old your son is still adjusting to the big wide world outside of your womb. Do not let it worry you, unless he has a fever and the movement is not controlable.
Having an infant is a great joy, I suggest you take him out for a short walk. Your a new Mummy with a beautiful new baby, so take baby steps and find what make you comfortable and what makes your baby happy. Baby

Hi there! I know how you are feeling as I did not go out for the first few months too. I was so bad that I refused to answer the phone or the door as I was so scared but it was wierd because I craved adult conversation. I eventually snapped out of it. Go on- you wont believe how many people you meet just by going for a walk in the park or something. And people love babies and will coo over your little one so show off!

Enjoy being a mummy and take it a day at a time... Kiss

hi and welcome, i hope your able to venture out of the house and get some fresh air with the baby

venture out. It will be worth it. I was exactly like you and wouldn't go out and the longer i left it the harder it was and i used to suffer panick attacks. Which made me stay in longer. Start off with small walks as the other said then maybe venture abit further. Are there any mum & babies groups where you live? That will put in touch with some other mums.

Congratulations, enjoy bubs while they are small as they grow so quikly lol.

Welcome I am also a new mum too. Have a winding problem too. Giving the baby infacol does help. Well when my baby does the same with his back I think hopes he's back ok. Hopind he dont damage his spine. Anyway I am hear if u need to talk about your fears. I need to chat to a new mum in the same boat as me lol.

My son had a set back jaw which in turn prompted massive feeding problems and awful colic for a very long time!

This is just a tip in case you haven't tried it, for making baby more comfortable.

Bend you arm across your body (90 degree type thing)If you put baby on their front along your forearm, head nearest your elbow facing outwards, and put your hand between their legs.

Josh's legs and arms just flopped and it really seemed to keep him a bit happier while the colic passed.

Hope this helps, I know everyone has their own way of doing things!

Very happy

my youngest was an incredibly greedy baby and would gulp his milk down and always had wind, i ended up giving him gripe water before every feed, it was the only way he would be able to get his wind up - he still gulps his food down now,however unfortunatly the wind tends to come out of the other end a little too much Crazy
