breastfeeding is screwing with my appetite

Over 2 months of this and I'm almost never hungry, only thirsty. I started to love drinking large amounts of water but I have to force myself to eat. I also have to admit I don't take any vitamins like I was told to.

I was the same for the first 5 months. It got better.

I just had my 5th child & I'm going through the same thing!  I had no appetite throughout my pregnancy either.  This is the first time this has happened to me.  My milk production seems fine, but it still worries me.

Set an alarm for every 3 hours. Not to feed the baby, but to feed you. If you don't keep up with your calories or fluids, your supply is going to go down and baby is going to get frustrated because there is not enough coming out to eat.
For me with the vitamins, I had to put them out in a pill minder container on my table to take every morning. Which reminds me, I need to go buy some more! lol

I was the same the first 6 weeks and then after I was either unsatiable or hardly ate all day.
