Insane hunger and dizziness
i might be posting this in the wrong section-- if so, please forgive, i'm new here! anyways, my son just turned a year, and he just this week started eating more solids. for his first year he mostly was at the breast, with maybe a couple of jars of sweet potatoes a week or so when daddy was taking care of him. i've started feeding him more solids because he's more interested. even with more non-breast feedings, i can't shake this dizzy feeling. i thought that if he nursed less, i'd feel better. in my breastfeeding career i've constantly been hungry, which i know is normal. i eat when i can, but i think as all moms know, it's hard to find time to stuff your face!
so, is this normal? i'm pretty thin now, but always have been. i'm still about 5 lbs over my pre-baby weight, but i think that's sticking around until i'm done nursing. i should also mention that i eat a pretty healthy diet-- lots of fresh veggies, mindful of protein and iron-- i'm almost vegan but eat eggs for protein. any help is appreciated!
