CoHP - Spring 2013 Term Wk 5 Charms Homework #3
Monday, May 06, 2013
I figured out my emotional problem. I'm coming off the pregnancy hormones, I think. My kid's been needing more formula the last few days, so I think I'm drying up. Nursing keeps the body in the pregnancy state. So if my kid's starting to wean, that's why I've been so crazy with all the ups and downs. I seriously teared up or outright cried at least four times today. Then a few minutes ago, I was in such a good mood I was giddy. My eating habits have been so awful this week as well, which probably doesn't help with keeping good lactation. *sigh* Formula is so expensive; I wish I was a better milk cow. On the plus side, I knew this would probably be an issue. My first born was malnourished for a short time, because I wasn't producing enough for her and didn't realize I needed to supplement with the formula. At least my second born has stayed at healthy weights.
