Help. I'm in Paris with my husband and 1 year old daughter. The problem, it's 1:30 in the morning and I'm crying in a closet typing this because I keep having meltdowns. Looking back I've noticed it over the past couple of weeks and its getting worse. Food doesn't taste good, my daughter is clingy and won't let me eat a meal in peace, and this trip is making that worse- I don't want to eat every meal with her on my lap but finding a high hair in Paris is proving to be a quest for the holy grail. She is still breastfeeding and won't eat much herself other than milk and she is draining me dry in addition to pinching and biting when frustrated. I'm jumping down my husbands throat for no good reason and I just can't figure out what's wrong with me! Could this be a very late session of post partum depression? I just feel overwhelmed to the point that I am having trouble comprehending what people are saying, and that is when they are speaking English! Has anyone else had ppd really late after their child's birth?
