  • it sounds like your blood sugar is low. Drink some orange juice, and eat a good meal. Keep something next to your bed, like some cookies or crackers, even beef jerky or granola bars if you would like. Breastfeeding takes a lot out of you, and you need to take care of yourself. God bless!

  • yes I agree on blood sugar, Breast feeding is a lot of work (for your body) you need to keep yourself hydrated and fed well (even if you don't feel hungry or thirsty)

  • I did this as well and it was a combination of a few things: low blood sugar, not enough water, and total lack of sleep. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water. A suggestion that worked wonders for me: keep your favorite flavor of peanut butter & cheese crackers next to the nursing chair & have a snack while your LO is nursing.

    I also had mastitis quite a bit and it always started with dizziness.

  • usually happens to me when I am dehydrated... and that can happen easily when bf. .... also happens to me when my blood pressure is low, or my blood surgar is low. Or you could be fighting off an infection... or it could be a combination of things mixed with not enough sleep and fluctuating hormones. But if it happens on a regular basis, call you doc.
