Re: How did you get through the first part?
I think nursing probably saved me from the depths of PPD. All those wonderful nursing hormones made a huge difference. When I was feeling blue I nursed. It was hard, but it was so worth it and feeding her now is so easy. I love nursing. I didn't read all the PPs but I would suggest that you talk with an LC at the hospital, and ask specifically that they show you how to nurse laying down. that was a lifesaver. We co-sleep and that makes BFing easier than formula. Also, my husband is super supportive and that made all the difference. PM me if you want to talk!
