    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Dizziness while BF
    alibeth06 posted:
    while i'm breastfeeding, i become extremely light headed and dizzy. doesn't seem to be affected by the amount of water i drink, or how much food i eat....always the same result. no one i've asked has ever heard of this happening, so they have no suggestions.... can anyone out there help me?! i want to continue to bf, but some days it's to the point i'm ready to throw in the towel..

    Sometimes this happens with me, but it's because I'm diabetic. Breastfeeding lowers my blood sugar so I have to have a snack nearby or have just eaten.

    this happens to me all of the time, did you ever find out what it was?
