I could use advice in a sort of desperate way.
Charlie has been super moody lately. She won’t play for long on her own before she’s crawling over to me and demanding to be held, but when I hold her she screams and pushes away. Inevitably I’ll nurse her for a bit before she starts the cycle again.
Today this went on and she nursed for a straight hour, then played for about twenty minutes and nursed again until her dad got him, when of course it was all smiles and giggles for him.
She’s also started nursing again at around 1:30 am when she was going from 7:00-4:00 previously.
So what’s going on? Is my supply dwindling and she’s trying to revive it? I keep wondering if it’s time to just give up and start thawing frozen milk for her to have in a cup throughout the day. I’m frustrated and tired. I’m frustired.
Edited: FFS y’all. I’ve been dieting. WHY DIDNT I THINK OF THAT?! My baby probably IS hungry because I’ve cut my calories back to about 1450 a day. I’m going to bump back up to where I was for a few days and see if it makes a difference. If it does then I’ll just focus on eating HEALTHY but not reducing calories, and exercising.
