    I do! I used to feel really quite sick and dizzy sometimes when Kynon was tiny but as my body adapted it went away but this week it came back. I had to go back to bed at 9 this morning after his feed when he was napping and then did the lunch time feed lying down. Still feel dizzy now :(

    Are you coming down with something maybe?

    Maybe try eating something sugary to give your blood sugar a boost and drink plenty of water also.

    I had felt that like a few times during BFing so know what you mean, but I always used to put it down to sleep deprivation catching up with me and then eat a ton of sweets lol

    It was probably tiredness and blood sugar levels like you said. Felt a bit washed out all day, hope I'm not coming down with anything!

    I feel funny in my stomach sometimes sort of a cross between butterfly's and feeling sick!

    Could be a blood sugar thing? Make sure your eating enough calories, sometimes I get headache after feeding if I've not drank much that day. How are you feeling now?

    I sometimes get a headache too. Still feeling dizzy and nauseous today, kind of like I'm not really there iykwim. I eat quite a lot, I tend to graze all day, maybe I need to eat even more, I didn't feed my DD this long plus Kynon is a lot greedier than she was!
