    I'm sorry you're going through this
    I have a form of this in which I get an intense and overwhelming feeling of home-sickness. It happened almost every letdown for months but has tapered off dramatically over the last 4 months or so (my LO is 10 months now). I hope you find some relief soon mama. You're certainly not alone in this.

    No I don't think It's PPD as this feeling has happen to me before birth too but only sometimes very rarely, now it's with every pumping/breastfeeding session.

    Is this why you seem to want to transition to formula? Also, is it less intense when you are pumping?

    Nope not at all, I don't know whats up but it's just breast feeding whenever I do it, I just don't want to do it for some reason -_-

    Your situation sounds incredibly tough. Are you stressed out? Maybe that could be contributing to the intensity..

    I'm having anxiety a half hour before the "scheduled" 2.5-3hr feedings my doc recommended because of little dude being 3wks early and having jaundice. Even deep breathing and TV/phone games are helping. But little dude is only 12 days old and I thought D-MER didn't manifest this early?

    So you don't have the symptoms when you pump? If that's the case, it makes sense that you would only want to pump.

    Hi, I've experienced D-MER while nursing both my children. I nursed each of them for 12 months had D-Mer for the whole 12 months with both of them. I attributed it to post-partum depression but I just recently found out about D-MER and its symptoms and it's exactly what I have. Have you checked out the website www.d-mer.org? It has some really great info. There are different levels of intensity for D-MER and mine is pretty severe. It doesn't help to try to distract myself or focus on my baby. I hated breastfeeding the whole time I did it and resented the fact that I felt like I had to breastfeed because we couldn't afford formula. And I hated it when women would talk about how much they loved to breastfeed and how it brought them closer to their baby. Breastfeeding never did that for me. I'm pregnant with my third baby and plan to breastfeed again (for us there isn't really an alternative). However, this time around I'm going to try some of the herbs talked about on the D-MER website and hopefully that will help. You can also talk to your doctor about getting a prescription.
