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.
