  • I agree, you may need some iron pills if your really tired. But having a new baby and breast feeding along with everything else would make anyone tired.

  • I just get frustrated because it takes up so much of my time.

  • yeeeees! Especially at first! You might want to talk to your doctor because when it was happening to me I was low on iron.

  • At FIRST, I felt like that was all I was doing. Now that DS is 9 mos, 5 to 10 minutes on the breast is all he needs. He doesn't even need it as often. It's all good. :)

  • Yep, especially at night. I'd take naps while my child was nursing.
