Just wondering how much water other breastfeeding moms drink in a day... I know the current recommendation is to drink to thirst, but I don't get thirsty, and with my dd I had to drink at least 80 oz or my supply would drop. Now with my ds I have plenty of milk but I'm having to drink at least 120 oz to keep from getting constipated. That just seems like a ton of water to me! How much water do you drink???
Wow, 6 liters??? Do you have a water hose that you drag around with you all day? Lol. I feel like I'm constantly refilling my water glass, and I'm only drinking about half that!
Well, I thought my diet was pretty good, but I probably should reevaluate... not really sure what to change nutritionally to help constipation though except drinking more water. Since the baby was born my husband's been doing most of the cooking, which probably means more convenience foods.
Itsybitsyspider, I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one who drinks this much. Everyone around me has an occasional glass or sip. I always drank lots of water as a kid and remember grandma telling me that if I didn't stop drinking so much water, frogs would grow in my belly lol.
