I get major postpartum depression. This is my 3rd (and last) child. My doctor told me that things have changed from the last baby (almost 4 years ago) and that research has proven that it is fine to take most antidepressants while breastfeeding. He said the only side effect really known is sleepy babies but nothing else. Anyone else heard anything on this subject? Last time I was pregnant they didn't allow medication while breastfeeding and I was able to do it 3 weeks before I was about to have a breakdown. It was horrible and I dont want my husband or family to go through that again. I figured that breastfeeding a sleepy baby is better than not at all.
