does this happen to anyone else?

At bedtime, after my lo nurses for like 45min i start getting sad, angry, and depressed. I'm wondering if maybe my oxytocin gets depleted from that much nursing.

This doesn't happen every day but if he doesn't get a good nap, it can be very difficult to get him to sleep at night.

I'm not really sure mama. Doesn't sound 'normal' but you might be on to something with thinking your levels go down. I don't know much about that.
I don't get those feelings. Sometimes I get annoyed that she's taking so long to fall asleep. It can get frustrating for sure ((hugs))

I have totally heard of this happening, so don't think you are alone! I don't remember specifically what causes it, but it is definitely hormonal. Definitely talk to your dr. they can really help! And don't let them tell you it is all in your head or anything!

EDA: here is a blog that mentions it.

I would definitely look into something to balance you're hormones. I have to watch my vitamin d levels for that reason, my hormones get all screwed up and breastfeeding doesn't help. I don't get sad but I will get super irritated during nursing sessions!

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.

Re: does this happen to anyone else?

For me, it's just sleep deprivation. I usually get enough sleep to last me through the day, but at night, I fall apart because I just want to go to sleep. It's especially difficult if my LO is fussy & wanting to nurse for a long time, or isn't nursing well. Hormones probably have something to do with it, too. IDK.

I hope you can figure it out.
