PND here we are again

My dd2 is three weeks old and my dd1 is 20 months and I just can't cope. I tried to put on a brave face but I can't do it anymore. Everytime I think things are going well dd1 has a massive meltdown tantrum and I'm back to being deeply depressed. I don't know why but I don't want to b around dd1 at the moment. When I was in the hospital I missed her so much and the thought if being apart killed me but now she is behaving horribly and I can't b around her. Dd2 wants to feed all the time and my dc are sucking the life out of me. I'm not sure I'm cut out for having children. I try so hard to b a good mother but I've just had enough now. All the crying and tantrums and breast feeding has finally got to me. I really cannot do it anymore! How do I get through this?

I have read other posts that suggest having two young ones is sooo hard at first. hang in there it gets better apparently . . . do you have OH?

You're only 3 weeks in and this is a massive adjustment for you all. No wonder it's taking a while for things to 'work'. Remember when dd was born? Did everything go smoothly then? I'm guessing not and this is the point- its a massive learning curve for you and she's gettin used to having to share her mum.
You're doing so well but don't forget if you need help you need to talk to people in rl too.

sorry my last post was really unhelpful, I just wanted to reply as your post was unanswered. If it really is PND you need to act now, the sooner you get help the better. Maybe call the docter?
