Re: Can I be?

  • PPD can manifest within a year of giving birth.  Weaning tends to be a very emotional (and hormonal) time, so it's possible that it is PPD.  Do you only cry when the baby feeds or is the depression affecting other areas of your life?  It probably wouldn't hurt to talk to your primary care doctor or OBGYN.
    Holy Crap. We survived the first year!
