I find myself getting teary very easily though I don’t feel depressed as such. Is this just normal after having a baby?

  • I’m guessing so as I feel this way also.
    After having kids the slightest thing sets me off into water works!

  • Be concerned if you weren’t!
    Hormones go crazy after having a baby.
    It should settle down soon but if you feel something is not right double check with your doctor. Depression can sneak up on anyone & it’s best to catch it quickly but I think you will find you will be back to yourself quite soon.

  • It’s very normal. Due to the hormones. A bit like pms lol.

  • I found I was but particularly around day 3ish when my milk came in. I think also tiredness plays a huge part with emotions.

  • Yes , it is because of the hormones.

  • So so normal after having a baby! So normal. If it doesn’t stop after a while there could be depression deceloping. I cried randomly just because for about 2 weeks after my baby. sleep deprivation does weird things!!! As do crazy new mother hormones :)
