PLEASE DONT JUDGE ME


So i have exclusivly breastfed my son for 4 monthes and loved every minute of it..

at night he is a cluster feeder and normally im fine with the 3 or so hours we hang out with him nursing before bed 

i dont know what it really was tonite but all i could think around hour 2 was get off my boob 

i set him in his swing went and got some air came back and all was fine but i needed him off me soo bad

and then i just felt awful..i picked him up and he wrapped his lil arms around my neck n cooed at me and i just felt like i was the worst momma ever

could this be post partum?embarrassed

Post Partum Depression?

I'm no expert, but if this was a one off, and you have no other issues, I think it was just you needing a little space, which is in my experience completely normal.

If you start to feel that way a lot, or have other depressive, or anxious etc feelings, then possibly, but from what you've said, sounds completely normal!
