    Default Sleep school update

    If bub is fighting sleeps for an hour then something's not right. Either bub is hungry or over or under tired.

    What routines and tips did the sleep school have in place and are you following them at home? It might not be obvious at the time however missing one or two of the routine steps can throw sleep time out the window.

    I agree with Holly - you need to make getting help for your anxiety the nr 1 priority (yes even above bub sleeping). You need to set yourself up for success instead of failure. Having a new bub with anxiety is bloody hard - a bit like trying to race in the Grand Prix with a Toyota Corolla - you might have the best intentions but it ain't gonna work unless you get help.

    We're you able to discuss your anxiety with the nurses? I was told I wasn't able to go to Ellen Barron until I was on meds due to pnd, anxiety and a high score on the Edinburg pn scale.

    no way would I have been able to do it without meds.

    I agree with pp, in order for your DS sleep to work and to feel calm and relaxed, meds will be beneficial. You've come so far, I would really recommend chatting to the doc about meds.

    Im seeing a psychologist now. Dont know if I need meds, last time I took them they didnt really help.

    My psych got me to do the depression, anxiety & stress test & I scored high on all three.

    Yes I talked about my anxiety & my gp talked about it when she wrote my referral.

    VicPark im doing everything they told me. I still have trouble picking his cues though so I still think im sometimes missing something

    Psychologists don't discuss nor endorse meds because they aren't doctors. It might help to see a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist is a dr in mental health who will evaluate your needs and prescribe the right med to fit with you.

    I found first time I took AD, they didn't work. 1. Because the dose prescribed was too low, 2. They were the wrong med for me and 3. It takes a few weeks for your body to adjust and for them to start working.

    I'm on 150mg of zoloft which, yes, is an extremely high amount, BUT nothing lower was working. And they definetly work for me. It's about finding the right med plus right dose.

    there is a perinatal psychiatrist at North west specialist centre. I saw him for 2 yrs. he also does a bit of counselling along side the meds side of things. It's about $50 per visit oop after medicare rebate.

    All of this! I've had depression and anxiety on and off for over 10 years. There are so many pills out there, it's about finding the right one + the right dosage. We're all so different.

    I'm also the type of person that cannot just do counseling, I need meds to help clear my head so that I'm receptive to the counseling.

    A perinatal psychiatrist is definitely the best option to ensure you're getting something breastfeeding friendly that suits your needs. A perinatal psych prescribed me Zoloft. I started on 50mg which didn't really work but saw amazing improvement on 100mg.

    I genuinely don't think his sleeping is going to get sorted until you get your anxiety and possible PND under control. A fog will lift and you'll discover you won't care about certain things that stress you out now and that you can easily solve other issues.

    What the pp have said. It took about three months to get the right drugs and dosage for me but I was an extreme case as well I'm on anti depressants and mood stabilisers. There are so many drugs out there and different dosages every body is different so it may take trial and error. I'm so grateful for the drugs and counselling they have made such a difference to life.

    Pm sent. If you need to find a supportive GP who deals with mental health, then I suggest ringing panda. They have a list of good drs who will help you and are local to your area.
