You're overjoyed to be a father, and that's putting it mildly. So why are you also feeling emotionally spent - After all that buildup, all the planning and spending and drama, your child has been born?and you feel not only run-down (that's the sleep deprivation) but also a tiny bit letdown. Welcome to the Postpartum Dads Club, when you suddenly realize why the word postpartum is so often followed by depression. Not everyone experiences the so-called baby blues, but expect a profusion of emotions that can last from a few weeks to a year - in both of you (fortunately usually only one of you at a time).
