I've posted here loads since having pp after my son in March 2014. Onset was about 6 days after birth.
My next baby is due in 9 weeks. I think I've put a good preventative plan together (protected sleep by family helping at night, starting meds that worked last time on high dose, reducing visitors, avoiding stress now).
I won't be breastfeeding this time as I don't want to pass any meds on and I can't feed on Aripriprizole anyway - plus this frees me to sleep.
I'll give the first breast feed then start meds & exclusively bottle feed. I just wondered if anyone expressed colostrum a couple of weeks before due date? I'm divided as I don't want to mess with hormones but I'd like to give the baby a bit for immunity - any thoughts welcome (please speak freely). I don't really have anyone to ask as everyone's opinions on this are black or white, few people see benefits of both ways!
