  • your baby will get what it needs, unfortunately that means it will draw that from you! protien from your muscles, calcium from your teeth and bones, etc.

    If money is an issue, go get on WIC! please! I've been where you are and because of that just had most of my teeth pulled because they got so bad!

  • I agree with the 1st poster. The baby will get what it needs, but you will be DRAINED!!! I had a stomache thing, and kept breastfeeding so the baby would get some immunities, but I couldn't keep anything down, so while my son was fine, I was just wasting!
