Can I get a little PPD info?

Do any of you have PPD and take meds WHILE bfing? If I go in I'd like to know if or what I could take.

Make sure you get plenty of Omega's! Pregnancy and bfing use these up and you should keep them replenished. Omegas have lots to do with mental health, among other things.

I don't know about the safety while bfing but I've heard taking a vit d supplement can help with keeping you happy.

I've been taking zoloft (now available generic ) for depression/pmdd and it really helps. I took it while bfing and pregnancy.

Hope things get better for you!

Re: Can I get a little PPD info?

im thinking about going to see about me too. my midwife thinks i may have ppd, but i know its also birth related. and winter related! and sleep deprivation! gosh, why haven't i called yet??

there are not many meds you can't have while bfing. you can check kellymom, or jack newman (pretty sure) has a new one out about meds and bfing. my lll group library has a copy, and our meeting is april 2, so if you want me to check in there, i am happy to. lmk.

I can't say that it is PPD (probably just my job & genetics), but I take lexapro. I took it through my pregnancy and through BF ( 11 mths now.)

Re: Can I get a little PPD info?

I have it bad...might sound funny but I got it after my first "M/C" and it just never went away and with each pregnancy it got worse. This pregnancy it hit a huge high and they had to do something. In Germany they believe in natural methods...I was told take hot baths daily, bright colors in my home and around/on me, take a vitamin a day, no junk food, and I was sent to see a therapist. The doctors on post don't agree but honestly it has helped me some, I still have it but not so much...I am not sure what is save while BFing though, I know I was told no meds while pregnant because of my risk factor. I hope you get better, I know how hard this can be. Just remember to make everything "happy" so to speak around you...use the sunlight instead of lights and stuff. I hope you get the answers you need and get something to help you.
