  • I think it can be both. Lack of sleep defiantly contributes to depression. Can someone help you a little more with the baby so you can sleep or get out of the house on your own.

  • I agree - probably both. Go talk to your doc.

  • Call your doctor to discuss this. They will know what questions to ask to give you the kind of help you need.

    I will say though, the lack of sleep with my first was like hitting a huge brick wall. There are several weeks I really don't remember too well.
