I have just been diagnosed with PPD and my doctor, my pharmacist and my ped have all advised me that I should stop my efforts to relactate/breastfeed as the meds can transfer into my breastmilk and may have negative effects on DS.
I feel so crushed. I almost feel like a failure. I felt that way because I didn't breastfeed the first time around and relactating gave me a new sense of worthiness... And now that is taken away from me too. I feel like I've failed my son twice.
This is going to take some time for me to process I guess... I was happy to find this board and now I feel sad that I have to leave...
I wish everyone the best of luck in their efforts with relactation. It is possible. I was close to milk coming in... So close...
Thanks for the support during the short time I could be a member of this board.
