I've been bfing my son for 2mths now and I noticed these last few days he's aggitated and doesn't sleep for long periods. Like maybe an hour or two at a time and is up for three or four hrs. His nights are spent nursing, pretty much the whole time. Or what feels like the whole time. I'm am on the pill, not the mini-pill but one up. it has a little bit of estrogen in it. I've been on that for about a month now. My doc said I shouldn't have a problem with reduced milk supply since my milk is well established.
Since my son has been so aggitated and acting hungry even though he nursed I decided that I would pump in order to build up my milk supply a little more. I noticed a change in my milk. Before, like just last month it was very white and milky. Now it looks like water all the way through. could this be the start of a dwindling milk supply?? I have stopped drinking milk and most dairy since the thrush, as well as eliminating lots of sugar, but I've noticed, I've also eliminated how much I eat in general, food isn't interesting anymore. I want to eat, but with having to eliminate so much for the thrush eating is not enjoyable, and I'd rather not. Could the decrease of dairy (pretty much elimination) affect this as well. and with it being so watery does this mean my son is not getting the satisfaction he needs from my breast milk?? Could this be why he's so cranky??
If this is the case, what can I do to get it back to where it was?? and can I do all this while still on the pill??
