See a professional: I recommend that you consult with a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist for an evaluation and to see the best treatment options for you. They can include counseling and medications but each treatment should be tailored to the individual person's needs.

Depression: Self-care is very important to remain balanced, but when you do have depression psychotherapy can be very helpful. Best.

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.

Triple threat: The three most common symptoms are inability to sleep, lack of interest in eating, extreme sadness. In children it can include aggressive behavior, defiance, self injurious behavior. Bouts of crying often without reason and thoughts of dying would indicate a very severe form. Reactive depression is common, but pathological depression is a very serious condition.

Therapy/self-care: Therapy will help -- ask your primary care doctor or call your insurance about a mental health provider. Things that you can do on your own -- try to establish routines, sleep hygiene, small achievable goals, look for positive aspects of the environment -- do a summary at the end of the day -- best thing that happened, the things i laughed at, etc. To bring you a sense of joy.

A good evaluation to establish the cause is always the starting point. Although it is probably Psychological-Psychiatric and needs a combination of Therapy and Psychiatric medication, often their are medical illness that masquerade as Psychiatric illness and can be ruled out by lab studies.
