I've posted this in the breastfeeding forum too.
My son has been nursing less lately. My supply has reduced as a result. The problem is, I've noticed that during times when he used to nurse but now isn't, I've had feelings similar to those that I had when I first had him (I had the baby blues for 2 weeks after he was born). I'm afraid of going through that kind of depression again, but I think it's going to happen when I finally wean him for good. I know it's related to nursing because as soon as he does nurse, I feel fine once again.
That's a tough one. I had PPD, but it was better if I was just near him. I didn't get worse when he dropped nursings. Could you try to pump when he used to have nursings? I think that might help. But eventually he will wean, so it's really only a partial answer!
