Baby Blues and PPD
It's very normal to get baby blues after you have a baby. It's different for everyone and lasts differently for everyone too. I had baby blues for about 2 weeks but if it lasts for more than 3 weeks and if you have thoughts about hurting your baby or yourself, seek help right away. Some moms develop PPD (Post-partum depression) which is more serious and should be monitored. I got really bad PPD after I had my 2nd daughter and I had to go see a doctor for awhile until I started feeling better.
