An anonymous mother has admitted that she hates her third child and wishes he would die in his sleep.

She explained that she loves her two daughters, aged six and eight, and yet is unable to find any affection for her son, who is the youngest.

The desperate mother took to Reddit to ask fellow parents for advice, however, the post has since been taken down, reports the Mirror online.

She claimed to get pregnant with her son by mistake and it wasn’t until four months into the pregnancy that she realised she was expecting a child, by which time an abortion was out of the question.

She hoped that prenatal complications might require her to have an emergency abortion.

However, her pregnancy ran smoothly and she unwillingly gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

The mother explained that she feigned joy when he was born and felt like she couldn’t give him up for adoption because she was afraid of what her other children would think.

She also claims to have been made redundant when she was 36 weeks into the pregnancy, which only exacerbated her anxieties about having an unplanned child.

“I honestly hated him for the first 18 months of his life,” she wrote.

While the mother noted that she doesn’t want to come across as ungrateful to parents who have lost a child, she admitted that she and her husband both had moments of thinking that their lives would be easier if their son did not exist.

“My husband and I both had a period where if he had of died in his sleep, we would have felt relief,” she confessed.

It is possible that the anonymous mother might have been suffering from postnatal depression, which affects more than one in 10 women within a year of giving birth, according to the NHS.

Symptoms can include difficulty bonding with your baby, a persistently low mood and insomnia.

    Wow! As a mother of three children I could never imagine feeling this type of way about one of my children! This is very sad 😔 I believe that she should have given the baby up for adoption because she will most likely mistreat him due to her feelings and it’s not fair to that poor baby!

    Wow. So sad, if you never planned on having another child then are various types that you can take or use to protect yourself from birth. Kids are innocent and didn’t asked to come here, so they should be love and treated with all the love and care this is.

    I am also a mom of 20 months old baby boy. I got pregnant at the age of 19 but it came accross my mind to have an abortion. I may not be the perfect daughter for my mom but i know that i am the perfect mother to my son.

    I had 3 older kids aged, 17,16 and 14, plus a 2 week old Grand-Daughter when I found out I was pregnant again. Shock was an understatement, and as Hubby and I were separated at the time, abortion was looking likely for me. When I got the money up to fly for it, realised there was no way I could. My little Angel is nearly 9 and such a blessing. Just couldn’t imagine life without him. Hard work for sure, since he was a baby. Constant crying, being sick, not sleeping. We later got an Autism diagnosis. Just a grateful Mom here to be bless with 4 kids and a lovely Grand-daughter. Hope that Mom involved here gets help. Just can;t understand her thinking though.

    Well i did not want her to die but i did not bond with her wich makes it hard now for her to talk to me r show each other affection if i could go back i would hve given her all the hug and kisses she needed. I truly understand when a child is not planned in a horrible situation.

    I think it’s disgusting that you could hate your child that’s been in you for nine months and have two others that you love you need some serious counseling

    The part that is really heartbreaking💔 is that the baby probably can feel her hatred for him. He may cry for affection her has yet to receive. I wish someone knew her identity. She needs to be reported to the authorities before she harms him or the child grows up feeling hated. This child may become a future serial killer growing up like that.😭😭😭
