I have a 5 week old daughte and a 7 year old daughter. I to felt down an sad. I aked my doctor about it and i didnt want to go on meds. So she suggested st. johns wort and prenatel viatimins. I have been on them of almost a week and been feeling better. not as stressed or sad.I also try to get outside. Try going for walk sitting out in the sun. Mybe just calling and talkingto someone. I'm still overwhelmed at times but just remember your ot alone ALOT of people go threw this. This will pass eventually and before you know it your LO wont be so little anymore. My husband works 2pm -12 am so im alone and do this by myself at the hardest time of the day. Just try to stay positive and love and talk tobay as much as you can. She needs you o be happy! Hope this helps

Maybe bring him to a doctors appoitment with you and have a doctor expalin it or maybe there are workshops about this at your local hospitals? You can both google it and get some info that way or maybe visit a library together?

Are you on meds for postpartum?
