How old is your nursling?
Quoting melindabelcher:Ive never gotten it while bf so I'm not sure but I would guess it won't affect supply.
What are the current indicators that your having supply troubles?
How far along are you? You don't need to stop nursing, but you may need to supplement because of his age--he still needs breastmilk or formula to meet his nutritional needs. How are his diapers? What is his complete weight history--birth, lowest, other weights that you have handy?
Quoting ckroch:Ds used to nurse just one side- than began needing to nurse both sides. My pump output is not enough to cover bottles on the days he goes to sitter (very rare- and I used to great pump output). He stopped sleeping at night- and now nurses 3-4 times a night. He nurses, and pops off a lot- then when he's done he still fuses for more. He's not really gaining weight. Barely 16 pounds @ 9 months. Having trouble with constipation despite every dietary change possible. He used to nurse, and be happy. Not anymore. He's a wicked happy baby- but I think we are barely making it. I have not been supplementing w pumped milk- just left him at boob. :-( it's makes me sad. I'm not going to quit- I will nurse thru my whole pregnancy if possible.
I didn't notice any problems when I had it with my son....
I am going to get the shot this year.... last year I skipped it... HUGE mistake, our entire family ended up with influenza (while I as 12 weeks pregnant) and I don't think I have ever been so sick!! I felt like death and got very dehydrated... my poor son had fevers of 105.. and DH got a secondary infection and was sick for over a month! Ugh! Learned our lesson! LOL
I haven't ever had supply issues following a flu shot and I've had 4 while nursing. I'm more concerned about what's going on with your supply right now.
