I hate to say this, but I'm not sure if I have ever properly bonded with my son, who just turned 2 years old. He's my first child, and while I do love him I don't feel that "overwhelming" love that I have heard people describe. Even when he gets his immunization shots, I don't cry out of empathy. Don't get me wrong, I don't like watching him get his shots and crying as a result of it. However I have heard other mother's (including mine) say that they cried and got upset when they saw their babies get shots. I do feel that strong protective mother instinct, I know I would tear someone's head off if they ever tried to hurt him. Just the thought of someone hurting him bothers me. But I don't know if I bonded properly, or am I still in the process of it? I didn't breastfeed him and he was born 2 months early. I had complications with the birth and had a c-section where I was asleep, so I never heard his first cries. I'm just so confused by my feelings. I love him, but I don't feel like it's enough love. I feel like I should love him more. And I feel terrible for even admitting this. Has anyone else had this situation before?
