Can baby blues happen months later?

Can baby blues happen months after baby is here? I can't stop crying and feeling like a failure. I don't know what is wrong with me.

  • yes! anytime up til your baby is one you can get symptoms of postpartum depression, most likely its not baby blues. See your OB before things get worse, your hormones are still imbalanced and PPD can really have a major affect on you and caring for your child. I would see a doc for sure.
