As you recognize, we all difer as to our basic personality style, and some of us are more highly strung than others. Having a baby, with many added stressors including sleeplessness, may exaggerate traits previously apparent.
For increased levels of stress and anxiety, I prefer to suggest if one needs more help, seeing a psychologist for CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) so as to identify triggers for anxiety, and to improve ones skills at dealing with those and any anxiety that may result, is best. And good at re-starting your previously effective coping skills.
Medication from a psychiatrist can help, but also has some problems potentially, and would be the next step to consider only if CBT wasn't helping enough
