I dont want to overreact but would appreciate other Gransnet thoughts.
My daughter's new baby is 2 weeks old today and we have hardly seen her or him since he was born. She is keeping us [me, her brother and her Dad] at a distance, although we live fairly close to each other.
I am not trying to intrude but as yet I haven't seen the baby awake! I saw him for 30 mins in hospital, and a brief visit once they were home with her brother for another 30 mins after 3 days, but nothing since and no contact from her. This is feeling very strange and hard to deal with.
I know she has been lucky in that her husband has had 3 weeks of paternity leave and when this is up things maybe different, but he is close to his mother and I don't like to have to keep calling her to find out if everything is ok with Mum and baby! I don't turn up at the house, I have texted to ask if its alright to call, but these and her brother's txts are not answered. This feels very strange - what should I do?
