I have been on Amoxicillin for about 4 days now for illness and Caiden is just on the tail end of his own Amoxil for an ear infection.
The thing is-he has become very fussy on the breast since he has been sick and even after he is feeling better.
I noticed that, even though he is a very fast nurser (w/the help of my Over active let down) he is usually done within 10 minutes.
Now, he is done in about 5 minnutes and my letdown doesn't seem as strong and my milk supply doesn't seem a lot at all. I have tried to nurse more frequently to gain milk-but nothing. Also, I have offered both breasts- andhe REALLY doesn't like that.
I try and keep him on the breast for longer, but w/his teething issues-he fusses and pulls and wants to get up. I am in a quiet room w/very little distractions.
What is going on? His sleeping issues have been all over the place too. He never seems to be in a restful deep sleep without me or DH holding him.
I am very concerned about my milk supply and why it seems so low. My breasts are saggy like after I weaned my DD. No fullness, lessened let down...Could it be the antibiotics?
I am terrified that I will have to stop BF'ing...
I really need some encouragement and some advice....
