I am struck today with a horrible sense of feeling down and overwhelmed. My baby is 5 weeks old and up until now it's been hard but doable. Today I feel like I can't take it anymore. I've been cooped up in the house, breastfeeding all the time, and scared I'm going to get depressed. Please help. Tell me it will get better.
My husband is concerned and sad to see me upset. My mother has come to help with the baby but somehow I can't calm down enough even to take the nap that I need.
The baby has such fussy fits in the evening of what seems to be never ending crying and I don't know what to do to make it better.
I guess I just need a little support out there. Please tell me you went through something similar and I can do it. And it will get better...:)
