Yes: It's pretty normal to be short tempered after having a baby. Your stress level is quite high, your life has changed significantly, and you are probably sleep deprived. See your doctor to make sure there is nothing medically wrong (like an underactive thyroid or anemia) and then see a counselor to help with anger management.
