Q:

I delivered a baby boy on nov30 2016. I got my first periods yesterday. Bleeding is more. Does dat affect my breast milk. ...?



Subha

I have read that there will be a dip in milk supply during periods. Not sure. But don't worry much about this. Take enough rest, sleep more and feed on demand.

Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Nature has made breastmilk in such a way that it will change according to the baby s needs and your bodily changes. So it will not affect breastmilk. However some research says that breastmilk turns thin in consistency during periods so u can expect the baby to feed often due to shorter satiety levels.
