Recent studies have focused on the impact of postpartum depression on breastfeeding; however, the role of breastfeeding and weaning in the onset of postpartum depression has not been adequately studied. This article describes the case of a woman who had 3 episodes of major depression, each following closely the cessation of breastfeeding. The clinical and research implications of the association between weaning and the onset of postnatal depression are discussed.
