Fussy New born Can Create Depression in Mom

Parent Interventions

Mothers can experience depressive symptoms if the new borns are fussy, according to a new report published in Academic Paediatrics.

The report which studied data of 8200 children and their parents stated that the chances of mother experiencing depressive symptoms would be twice higher in the case of pre-term fussy babies (delivered at 24-31 weeks of gestation). The depressive symptoms showed variations according to gestational age and fussiness of children, the report added.

The report indicates the need for mothers to get more emotional support and encouragement to tide over the depressive symptoms caused due to caring for fussy children.
