Re: Supplementing when you are sick
Ideally, you tough it out and nurse. Even if you feel empty, your baby will be able to get a meal provided she nurses frequently enough and works hard enough at the breast. Skip those frequent, intense sessions because you've supplemented, and your body may take that as a sign that it can relax and reduce production.
If you're just going to do this once, it's probably okay. But don't get snookered into doing it every night, or you will probably end up with supply problems at that time of day.
Sorry you're sick, mama! Try to stay hydrated and rest as much as possible.
