My baby is 8 1/2 mths old, but I think I'm starting to get PPD. My husband is away on deployment, and this isn't new for me, so I thought if be fine. But since its just me taking care of the baby, I haven't had the chance to be away from my baby for more than a couple hours a month. Lately, I've felt more distant from my LO (don't want to play, feel like I'm taking care if someone else's baby, tired all the time) but she's such a good happy baby all day long. At night, it's hard to get her to sleep and I'll just cry out of frustration. I'm just overwhelmed cuz I have no one to help, and I don't know what to do. How can I get help if I can't even get any support or rest?Answer Question

Also go to your county or state website (Google each) and search the sites for any type of aid they offer moms. You might let the baby fuss at night after doing whatever soothing routine you do at bedtime. Then get into a hot tub/shower with some favorite music on. You desesrve a few moments of quiet each day. Thanks goodness she's a good baby. hug
