Postpartum depression may be linked to colic

My 2nd child who was also my first son had colic. Very bad colic. His started after I stoped breast feeding. I wasnt even thinking about it but my hubby is lactos intolerent and so was our son. They changed his milk but he still had the colic. He would start screaming at 5pm and it lasted until 2am. He did this the first 2 years of his life and not one thing worked to sooth him.Believe me, I tried everything under the son, but no PPD. That came after my 3rd child. It was horriable. I would cry all day and so would my son. When daddy got home and I gave the baby to him all was fine and he ws setteled for the rest of the evening.

It broke my heart to feel the way I did about my son but had I known things would never have gotten out of hand. Please, if you feel you have PPD, tell your doctor. It almost destroyed me. I went a whole 1 1/2 before I was treated and boy my life was a whirle wind by then. That is a story for another time.
