My sister-in-law, just had her baby Feb. 20th. I believe she may be going through post partum depression. I never went through it myself, so I don't know what the signs could be. My brother is ecstatic about their son. She is not even happy. She won't hold him, feed him or spend any quality time with him. If company is around, then she will hold him momentarily, but the minute they leave, she will hand him over to my bother again. She doesn't get up in the middle of the night with him either. The day she had him, the dr. went to hand him to her and she told the dr. she didn't want him, she was too tired. I find all this really odd. I was excited to have my baby. I love being a mommy. She has nothing to do with him. If, you went through this, what were some of the things you did and how did you get over it? Any advice is welcome.
