Only 3 weeks into BFing, have heebie jeebies...
Absolutely! For me, soy is the trigger. It spikes my estrogen levels and nursing suddenly feels awful. If you have started eating any type of diet foods recently (they often contain high levels of soy protein) that could be the cause.
I don't have time to read all the posts so maybe someone already wrote this
My sister had the same problem. It was from lack of minerals. Even prenatals may not be absorbed by your body. You could try liquid minerals.
My baby also recently broke out with facial acne which I read someplace has to do with estrogen, mentioned here as a heebie jeebie trigger. I don't think I have a lot of soy in my diet but will be reading all the labels in the fridge.
Someone else in this thread mentioned weight loss as a trigger for the heebie jeebie nursing feeling -- I gained about 50 lbs with the pregnancy, the baby was over 9 lb. and I am about 10 lb. above my pre-pregnancy weight now, do I need to gain back some weight maybe? The baby is gaining nicely.
I am taking pre-natals but ran out of calcium last week, maybe that is adding to my problem... am going to double my water intake for the dehydration issue...
Any other suggestions? Obviously weaning is not an option with a three week old baby... I feel so horrible and stressed out!!! I really want this to work. Please help!!!
