Ensuring proper nutrition is essential when combating depression. Healthline recommends whole foods as opposed to processed. You can also benefit from adding omega-3 fatty acids, which are currently being looked at as an alternative treatment for PPD. Omega-3s can be found in foods like salmon and flaxseed oil, or you can take them as a supplement. You're likely still taking prenatal vitamins if you're breastfeeding, and many already contain omega-3s.
