Women who breastfeed their babies may have a better shot at beating the "baby blues."
10% to 20% of new moms suffer from some form of post-partum depression.
Sleep deprivation and hormones play roles, but many new moms also experience an increase in inflammation.
Researchers say breastfeeding and Omega-3 fatty acids could help lower that inflammatory response and stress levels.
Unfortunately, depressed mothers tend to quit breastfeeding earlier than other moms.
