The Mccann's make a challenge to Portuguese Police:


the Kate's diary shows that she is exausted taking care of 3 kids and Maddie was hiper active.

So sometimes Kate just couldn't handle them anymore.

Has she post partum depression or "baby blue"?

Postpartum Depression :
Is it the "baby blues" or postpartum depression?
Sadness. Non-stop tears. Moodiness. Guilty thoughts. A hard time doing every-day tasks. Fear of harming your baby. These are all symptoms of postpartum depression. Could you have it and not know it?
The typical woman assumes she will feel only happiness about the new addition to her life. In reality, 70% of women suffer from the "baby blues," and 10% to 20% develop postpartum depression.
The difference between "baby blues" and postpartum depression :
The "baby blues" is a mild form of depression that many women feel soon after they give birth. It can be caused by changes in hormone levels, as well as by other challenges such as lack of sleep. Symptoms of the "blues" can last from several days to a week or more. The symptoms are not severe and almost always go away by themselves.
However, some women suffer from a deeper, more serious depression. This is postpartum depression, and it differs from the "blues" in the following ways:
It can last for a long time.
It usually begins three weeks after you deliver.
Symptoms are severe. Mothers may feel anxious and scared for much of the day. They also may have thoughts of harming themselves or their babies. Other symptoms include lack of appetite, not being able to sleep, and feeling angry.
Help is available
Treatment for postpartum depression varies based on the woman's symptoms. All symptoms, whether mild or severe, are temporary and can be treated. Seeking help is an important first step in feeling better.
