Hi everyone! I'm currently breastfeeding and I drink about 4 litres a day and usually pretty thirsty. Today I drank over 4 litres and my lips are dry, my mouth is dry and I'm yearning for some more water! I don't understand. Nothing is quenching my thirst and it's driving me nuts!

 

Any ideas why this is happening :(?

You might want to get your thyroid checked and get checked for diabetes too.

 

i am extremely thirsty while breastfeeding too but it can't hurt to make sure there are no underlying issues.
