Changes in your hormones can change the taste of your breastmilk

The return of your period 🩸 after delivering a baby 👶 means big changes are happening in your body.

One of these changes can be the taste of your breastmilk 🤱

It is possible that hormones can change the taste of your breastmilk. Moms may notice that their babies may be fussier and won’t nurse effectively.

The fussiness can last a few days 📆

Here’s what you can do 👇

✅ Try to hand-express every feed

✅ Is baby latching on and drinking but still fussy, try to still hand-express milk

✅ Try hand-expressing milk in a bottle or cup (when refusing the breast)

✅ When baby is fussy at only certain feeds, try to hand-express during these feedings

✅ If you have frozen breastmilk in the freezer and baby is fussy at the breast, try to give baby that milk

Most mamas have noticed that their babies 👶 settle down at the next period 🩸 and feedings become more easier.

Have you ever noticed that baby is fussier when you nurse during your period? 🤱🍼
