Yesterday I was sick with terrible diarrhea.
Babies often breastfeed more when mom is ill. Is it b/c her supply is dipping? Is it b/c the baby is also ill and trying to access the antibodies, Is it b/c the baby is bored b/c mom can't be as 'entertaining' as usual..................hmmmmm............or a combination of all of the above. Don't really know but I do know that moms have been successfully breastfeeding through illnesses since the beginning of mothers and babies. The flexibility you are exhibiting is the key to maintaining a supply. Don't forget breastfeeding has been around longer than breast pumps and formula.............;-)
