Shakes after BF?

Go down

default Shakes after BF?

Post by nickyjones on Mon Sep 14, 2009 7:00 pm

A few times now, very soon after Keira unlatches from a feed, I suddenly feel very cold and shakey. On 2 instances these shakes have been very very violent. They stop when I crawl under a duvet and lie down and warm back up but still leave me feeling a bit unwell.

Has anybody else experienced this? I don't remember it happening last time, except when it was cold in the room - but the room temp when it happened this evening was 24 degrees. I was only wearing a vest top but that was because I was feeling warm when I lay down to feed her.

Hun I have answerd your post on the other forum but will repeat it.
Nikki are you eating when hungry and drinking plenty?

When your blood sugar level is low this can cause the shakes, also the sickness can be related to the release of oxytocin when getting a let down.

Make sure your getting plenty of protien Shakes after BF? Thumbup

Although if you have lumps or pain in the breasts it could be the start of mastitis, but you tend to feel constantly unwell not just after a feed, im more inclined to say blood sugers but you need to speak to your middy hun Shakes after BF? Hugs

Make sure your eating enough Shakes after BF? Hugs
