I've noticed recently that I'm happy, like really happy. And it's weird. I've had depression and anxiety for around three years but managed without medication. So feeling depressed seems quite normal to me. But I've now ebf dc2 for 6 weeks and I'm just so content. Is this the famed hormone thing that makes you feel calm and happy? If so then I'm going to have to keep bf forever I think!

That sounds lovely, really pleased for you if it is bf is making you feel that you way and that most importantly you are feeling better after what sounds like a tough time.

Bf makes me so relaxed, especially if at home and feeding lying down...I've started to doze so many times!

Bf makes me sleep. Nothing else does. I mean, the baby wakes me up, but if she doesn't, I sleep like a dream. I also get the fuzzy contented feeling, that is specifically when feeding though. Happy hormones.

DC1 weaned at 20 months and I stopped sleeping again… but I have a newborn again now… yeah she wakes several times a night but in between I sleep so well!
