How did you know you had postpartum depression?

I'm 2 months out and I'm not feeling like myself
at all! What were some indications that you needed help? How can I tell the difference between adjusting to motherhood and actual problems?

your lucky, i didn't realize i had postpartum depression until my baby was 2yrs old. i had alot going on, I divorced her wife beater drug dealer/ drug abuser of a daddy, and had a horrible boyfriend, heard that my own mother was sleeping with my ex and my ex boyfriend, and was a single mother of 2kids.... living in my mother's house.... i had no connection with my baby, and didn't even realize it until she was 2! if you have it you need help... your tiny baby needs someone who connects with her and thinks she is magical, because that is what a baby is, she is magical. you are not a bad mother, you just have postpartum, and need help, MANY mothers go through this, and many times just talking to someone can help... you do not necessarily need medication.
