SADNESS WHEN STOPPING BREASTFEEDING | POST WEANING DEPRESSION

SJ Strum

The depression no one talks about.
I couldn’t breastfeeding my first baby for as long as I wanted due to tongue tie and recurrent mastitis. I felt so so sad for so long afterwards; years to be honest. I later came across the term Breastfeeding Grief (or post weaning depression) and felt that was exactly what I had been feeling, without being able to express it. I hope if you’re feeling the same about finishing breastfeeding you find this and it helps you. SJ x
