Seek help.: Depression is not just sadness and feels terrible. If you have done everything you can think of to help this please consult a psychologist or therapist to get other ideas on what is going on and how to effectively deal with your depression. It is smarter to get help than to live with depression which sucks the life out of a person.

Yes: Yes, having a baby is suppose to be a wonderfully happy time, but when one is up every couple of hours to feed and change diapers without any spousal help, then fatigue sets in. This may lead to frustration, resentment, and ultimately depression.

Yes: I treat depression every day. It is possible, however, that you have some other condition. For example, problems with one's thyroid gland can probably mimic your symptoms. The best thing, i think, might be for you to start by having an evaluation by your local physician, or to try and make an appointment to see a board certified psychiatrist.

Have you talked to: Your physician to see if there are any medical conditions that may be contributing to feeling down? Evaluation will also help to determine if you have depressed mood or a clinical depression.

Aim for 7.5 - 8 hours of sleep/ night. Daily physical activity is optimal in a green space. Eat healthfully. Cut out junk carbs, caffeine & alcohol (or moderate).
