My husband just asked me if I thought he had post partum depression. I couldn't help it, I started laughing. My question is now, can MEN get symptoms of ppd? I never had it at all so I'm not even sure how it is. I know some men take on some "sympathy symptoms" of pregnancy, but I'm really not sure. Btw, our dd is a year and a half and he's just now asking.

Yeah I know, I feel kinda bad, but it was just random right after him getting over a laughing fit with the baby.

Idk. He plays with her all the time. She's only a year and a half old so she has A LOT of growing up to do.
