New dad here to a wonderful week old girl. Has your partner stated he has PPD. I was actually talking to my wife today that sometimes it is frustrating. Not in a negative way towards the baby as in I don’t love her or have a connection. More in a I want to be more active during night hours so she can get more sleep and rest in between feeds. Maybe his frustration is resulting from the same? Trying to be more involved to lesson your stress or just his attempt to be helpful. I am not saying PPD isn’t a possibility, just that it makes more sense to drill down to his concern ( probe by asking questions around the main issue if he doesn’t like talking about it directly) It’s provably because I’m against taking medications. Seems to me that dialogue is the key. Regards New Dad
