Post partum after 3 months?

Has anyone experienced post partum depression starting 3 months after delivery? I'm not having any problems bonding with or caring for my baby but I'm very emotional...I cry several times a day and often for no reason...I have patience with my baby but only my baby....I feel like I'm going crazy. I've been back to work for about 3 weeks now and I have really good child care but I cry every time I have to leave him.....has anyone else experienced this? Should I talk to my doctor or is this something that will just pass on its own?

I'm pretty sure that's not postpartum depression It's hard leaving a baby especially for a first time mom I have to go back to work in 3 weeks I'm dreading it I know it's gonna be tough. What you having is prob called "Baby blues" I had that the first few weeks I would cry for no reason and I was very emotional. If yours gets worse then yes you should definitely talk to your doctor. I hope you feel better soon God bless you and your little one.

You and I are going though the same thing only opposite. Im a stay at home mom for now due to my baby being born with a heart condition and im depressed because I cant return to work ( ive always been really overly ambitious) and my dr keeps referring to it as post partum. Baby blues end after 3 weeks or so in the very beginning but after that its considered post partum. You may also have seperation anxiety mixed in which I'm sure isnt helping. Im sorry!!
