I'm exclusively breastfeeding a 7 month old (happily! and with great advice from many smart women here!).
But, I've had a cold for two weeks, including a pretty bad cough for the past 3-4 days. After many really difficult coughing fits, I now have a pretty strong pain on the right side of my back, along the bottom two ribs.
I thought I had read somewhere that breastfeeding can impact bone density. Is it possible that I could have bruised or cracked a rib from the coughing? Does anyone have any knowledge in this area? Or a resource for me to take a look at?
