Yes: Anyone who has breastfed knows that it can be very demanding. Sleep deprivation is common for new moms, especially those who are breastfeeding. Keep breastfeeding, though..It is really the best gift you can give your baby. Get anyone willing to help you to give you a hand so that you can catch up on some sleep. Sleep deprivation can certainly cause headaches and depression.
