I have a funny problem with my teeth and wondered if anyone could help?
My four year old son has just weaned. For the last year or so of breastfeeding I was on a dairy-free diet because of digestion problems, and I think I wasn't getting enough calcium.
I'm no longer breastfeeding, but after weaning the hormone changes caused my digestion problems to get much worse and I'm on a very restricted diet now while things sort themselves out. I'm making sure to eat sardines twice a day to get a decent amount of calcium though, and I'm green leafy vegetables or brocolli twice a day for vitamins and what-have-you.
The weird thing is that a few months ago my front teeth started to feel a bit wobbly. They are a bit wobbly every day now, but after I eat my sardines and leafy greens they stop being wobbly for a few hours, and then they go back to being wobbly. The more sardines and leaves I eat, the longer my teeth stay non-wobbly.
Obviously the thing I'd really like to do is to get to the point where they are not wobbly at all. Do you think I've just got very short of calcium and that I need to really work to build up my calcium reserves again? Sardines are a bit too fishy to eat in very large quantities and I don't seem to be able to eat anything else that is a good source of calcium. I tried calcium suppliments, but the vitamin D in them keeps me awake at night. I can't buy calcium suppliments without vitamin D.
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
