Re: Can the onset of AF cause my nursling to be fussy?

YES YES YES!!! Oh my gosh yes. My kiddos have to deal with it right away because no matter how often I nurse day and night I get AF back at less than 4m (this time it was less than 3!!).

I've found that taking 1000mg of calcium and 500mg of magnesium from mid-cycle will not have your supply drop so much and help the hormones from bothering them so much.

I dehydrated and encapsulated my placenta after Gray was born so I take two of those for the first few days and it helps TREMENDOUSLY! Most people don't do that, but it has made an absolutely incredible difference for us. No more screaming (with hunger) baby! Yaaaay!
