  • Being overtired and irritable definitely makes PPD more likely. Either way, see a professional.

  • Agreed with the rest of the answers... Just consult with the Dr.. also if you can get an extra hand, try to go out for a few hrs, go to a mall, or visit a friend....

  • I think only a medical professional would really be able to tell you if you're experiencing PPD. Good luck!
