    Default Too Much Turkey!?

    So...I have been eating A LOT of turkey leftovers in the past few days and have noticed my boy is a bit sluggish! Could be a serious coincidence but does anyone know if tryptophan passes through breast milk?

    not sure, but I think I read something about tryptophan being in breastmilk already. How old is your baby? Could be a growth spurt... some babies get sleepy before/after one.

    There actually isn't enough tryptophan in your milk after consuming large amounts of turkey to make LO sluggish. My DS has been sluggish since Thanksgiving, and I attributing it to all the activity/stress that comes with the holiday. Afterall, I know I feel like I need a holiday from the holiday.
