Hi everyone. I have a 2 mo old and so far things have been good, but I have a few concerns. In the last few days, I've experienced the following...
A burning sensation after nursing that shoots through the breast. Usually on the least favoured breast. No bleeding/cracked nipples or blisters though
A decrease in supply(i think). She has suddenly wanted to nurse much more often and for longer periods. She falls asleep nursing and when I pull her off, she wakes up and wants to nurse again. When she does stay awake, she stares at me with this pissed off look on her face for awhile then goes back to smiling and talking. (I'm not kidding, even though it probably sounds funny)
Now here's the two big things... For one I just started my first period on Saturday and to top it off she's only had one poop in two days. I was thinking it was the no poop that was causing her behavior, but even after she finally did the deed, she's still irritated. Doc says she's fine since she finally pooped.
So my questions are:
Is the burning sensation and decrease in milk supply related to my menstrating?
Is my LO going through "baby PMS" or is it simply the no poop thing?
Should I be concerned in her change of feeding habits and behavior?
I don't know how to react to any of these things. Please let me know your thoughts.
