Does stress cause a decrease in milk supply? I never had a problem nursing DD1, or at least none that I noticed. Lately, though, I have been trying to nurse DD2, and she barely gets any before she pulls off and cries and throws a fit. She is 4.5 months, and I have just recently been very stressed. Of course, when I get very stressed, I get sick. I vomit, and I also barely can eat. Is there a certain type of food that I can eat that will help increase?
There is nothing I can do about the stressor. it's going to be around for awhile.
