I'm currently feeding newborn DD. I didn't manage to bf my DS so this is my first experience of bf. I'm having a weird experience around feeding her and hoping someone can advise. When she is wanting to be fed, and I'm sitting down to feed her, I suddenly feel woozy, dizzy and sick. This is before she has latched. I also feel woozy sometimes when she cries. Even if she's just fed and crying because she's tired.
Anyone know what this is? I've been drinking buckets and I hope eating well.
It’s quite normal and should go away after a few weeks. I always got a butterfly’s in tummy feeling that sometimes went to nausea. There’s also something called D-Mer which causes feelings of doom and sadness. A friend of mine had this and experienced nausea with it too.
Yes, I’ve had that in the early days at the exact latching time. I kept averting my eyes as I thought I might faint!
It’s probably because it’s so surreal compared to anything else.
It passed at some point but oddly enough I got it today as milk was overflowing out of DS’s mouth.
Thank you so much, how weird, I'm glad it's normal - I will just try to ride it out. She's 6 weeks.
Sounds like it's linked to your letdown so shouldn't be anything to worry about.
