Hi, I'm needing some help or advice...
I had my first bout of mastitis last week, actually exactly 7 days ago. I did as instructed, and nursed my daughter (11 months) frequently to help get over the infection. However, ever since then, she acts as though she's starving! She wants to eat every 1-2 hours....sometimes even every 30 minutes!!! When I pull my breast out to feed her, she gets so excited, impatient, and anxious, like she hasn't eaten in days!
1) She is eating 3 regular meals of solids.....maybe she isn't eating enough at those times?
2) I've lost a lot of weight while nursing.....I'm about 30 pounds less than my "pre-pregnancy weight"......maybe my milk isn't as filling for her as it used to be?
3) Could she just be going through a growth spurt? I just didn't think they last this long?
Thank you in advance for any advice or help!
