I've got an 8 week old baby girl and since she was born I have felt overwhelmed with the responsibility of caring for her and the life changing effect having her has done on my life (feeling I can't get out of the house and can't do things I used to do). I was working at a job where I saw a lot of people but decided to stay at home with her so I don't see very many people, mostly my husband who works long hours. His hours are supposed to be cutting back soon so I am hoping having him home more will help with my emotions. I thought this feeling of being overwhelmed was natural but when she was two weeks old she came down with a virus and was in the hospital for a couple of days. I have also had a lot of trouble getting her to eat at the breast. She does well when I pump and give her bottles but I would really like her to eat at the breast instead. The stress of her being ill and not a good eater has me wondering if I am also struggling with postpartum depression. I cry every day (not all day but every day) and feel overwhelmed with the thought of simple tasks...dishes, cleaning, paying bills, etc. I want to feel more like myself again but I am afraid if I take antidepressants it will effect my milk supply and cause more problems. Does anyone know if antidepressants decrease your supply?
