breastfeeding and ppd

Unfortunately, postpartum depression may be the ONE ailment that breastfeeding does not prevent. More research is needed on the link between depression and breastfeeding (does depression cause weaning or does weaning cause depression?), but the research so far seems to indicate that moms who are successfully breastfeeding are less likely to be depressed than those who are not.
