  • i dont think it would be the depo shot i was on it with my first son and breasfed him and didnt have that happen. id say your little one is just alittle bit of a ruff sucker thats all.

  • it could mean your low on iron I would see if they can test your iron and maybe get you on iron pills, but only if they dont affect your BreastFeeding
