  • i dont know how true this is but someone told me that there is something in your breastmilk that causes you and the baby to relax and that it can make you sleepy. bc i breastfeed also and when i first started it made me so tired. and that is what i was told

  • i'm with ya. i think even if we get 8 hours total, theres something lost if it's not continuous sleep. but us women are built for lack of sleep, right? i agree with the pp-- make sure you're getting enough food. cslories = energy :)

  • Your profile says you have six kids....I think "tired" comes with the territory! **smile**
