my body hates me

a massive nasty head cold, a massive nasty UTI, and my boobs are revolting against me. it takes way too much energy to be sick and nursing. Sad just had to complain a little.

I agree! Though I always remind myself that nursing is easier than getting up, making a bottle of formula, and later cleaning the bottle while sick.

I feel so fortunate that last winter/spring was nice to me. When I've been sick I've been glad to just lie on my bed without a shirt and just let DD visit me for nursing. Remember to hydrate hydrate hydrate!

And the MAIN thing to get out of this is that breastfeeding helps HER to be LESS sick than if she weren't breastfeeding, so it's WORTH the extra energy sap. Smile

Feeling LOADS better today, but still getting tired easy. At least the head cold symptoms are gone. Sadly, her eyes are pink and irritated. But there's no discharge, so not sure what do do about that.
