Is it normal for me to have depressing thoughts only while bfing? It's so strange because I love bfing and the closeness I feel with my daughter. We worked really hard to get past the first few weeks of her not gaining weight, dr encouraging formula (thanks to you ladies I didnt give in and things have been great). She's 4 wks now and I finally feel confident with bfing, so why would I be feeling this way? The thoughts come and go very quickly and only when I sit down to bf. its so weird, like a few seconds before my milk letdown I get this overwhelming feeling of sadness. It last for a minute or two then goes away. Then I feel horrible for having bad thoughts. Is something wrong with me? I have no other signs of ppd and other than being sleep deprived I feel great. Anybody know what could be going on? I really don't want to speak to my ob about this, drs are so quick to medicate for every little problem.
