I've tried everything (herbs, Dom, pumping after each feeding, drinking plenty of water, eating regularly, resting as often as I can) to exclusively breastfeed, but I can't. Baby's still hungry so I got my thyroid tested. Doc called today and said thyroid's a bit high, so wants to put me on Synthroid.
I know Synthroid is safe for breastfeeding. My question is: I know hypOthyroid can present a problem for breastfeeding by making your supply low. Does hypERthyroid create problems as well, or am I going to jeopardize my supply even more by regulating my thyroid levels (5.6 at the moment)?
Any help and insight is appreciated, ladies. I don't know a lot about this and can't research it right now (speech therapy for the little one).
