I am breastfeeding my 23 months old on demand, about 6-8 times a day (within 24 h). For quite a long time I was suffering total exhaustion, until lately I got cramps in my left chest, so strong that I thought it is my heart. An inner knowing told me that I need Magnesium. I began taking homeopathic globulis, which improved the situation for a couple of days, but only from one to the next dose. Yesterday, I finally got magnesium to drink (powder to dilute) with 310 mg each package. I was told I could drink one a day while breastfeeding. I took one last night, and about 12 hours later another. I makes the cramps disappear and lets me feel stronger and more relaxed overall. Despite this fact, right now, just about 7 hours later I feel I would like to take another dose of magnesium. So here I am asking if anyone of you could give me a clue how much magnesium a day I could take while breastfeeding in order to restore the necessary amount of magnesium in my body (if that is stored)? Of course, without harming my little jewel of a son ;)
I would very much appreciate a quick reply. I am currently abroad, so where I am for the next couple of months I don't have a physician I could ask in the languages I speak.
Big hugs out to all of you awesome bf mamas!
