Periods and breastfeeding Lock Rss

Hello! How are you getting along hun? As a matter of first importance, congrats on your child! You're extremely a favored lady. Truly! I concur! Numerous kids do tend to get expanded need at times. Anyway! All things considered, you ought to get a visit to a Gynecologist. He or she will tell you that what's really happening...It can be identified with periods at the same time, I am not a mum myself yet. Thus, I can't put a feeling. Be that as it may, even now, I am TTC. Anyway! That is my story, in any case, you ought to run with it! Remain favored!
Hey there! I hope that you're doing good. Okay, so you're having a reduction in milk supply. Well yes, menstrual cycle affects the supply. Menstruation or ovulation can result in a temporary drop in milk supply. You might also notice cyclical dips in milk supply before your period returns, as your body begins the return to fertility. Hormonal changes also cause milk supply to decrease during pregnancy. But it doesn't mean that it's a permanent drop. After the cycle, it will return to the normal. You can also take calcium and magnesium supplements to regulate it. The recommended calcium supplementations dosage is between 500mg to 1500mg. Thus it can be regulated easily. Don't worry about it. It will be fine after your cycle is over. Till then you can feed your baby on different formulas like nan etc.I hope that this helped you. Take care of yourself. Much love.
Hi Vincee!!! Hope u ding good. Firstly I want to congratulate u for ur little angel. U r very lucky that u e blessed with a cute baby. Ur baby is very young at this time and it’s a best option to breast feed him. U r a superb mom. as u know that it’s a time of growth of ur child and no doubt he will require more and more nutrition. Ur concern is very much helpful for other mothers who have experienced the same scenario. Actually, when the baby grows rapidly then his demand will naturally be increased. As a matter of fact, I have suffered the same situation after my second delivery. My baby`s demand increased day by day and I was so worried that either my milk is sufficient or not. But alas I was having very less supply of milk so my baby wasn't satisfied with my milk only so I shifted some of his diets on the fresh milk of a cow with added water of equal amount and that idea was superb. As my baby got equal nutrition as well as his hunger was satisfied. But in your case, I think the baby is more demanding and he likes to have milk all the time. there is nothing to be worried about. But still, if your baby`s discomfort would prevail then u should seek help from a specialist. Thanks.
Hi Vinee!! Hope u and ur little one is fine. First of all welcome to ur newborn in our world that a great pleasure for having ur child in this beautiful place. Secondly, ur question is very obvious and simple. I have experienced the same scenario when I was having my first child. Just after 5 months, I got my menstrual cycle and the supply of milk was reduced. My milk production was already very less and during periods they were decreased with a huge deal. It's very usual that the milk supply drop with the start of our periods as our blood calcium reduces very rapidly. My doctor recommended me a lot of alternatives for it. He advised me to take calcium supplement mainly 500mg but it's important to take calcium and magnesium in combination otherwise the absorption of calcium in blood would be complete. Another thing which boosts up milk production is the intake of oatmeals during breakfast they helped a lot during lactation. Drink nursing teas also helped in increasing the milk availability for baby. So try all these at home and would get positive outcomes. Thanks.
