In this episode, a listener question sends M&H down the research rabbit hole to understand why breastfeeding makes you feel so thirsty and so sleepy. Turns out, it’s all in the hormones. But you’ll be shocked to hear that it’s not only about oxytocin! Enter, prolactin; you’ll be amazed!
They also discuss the practicalities of drinking when you’re thirsty and making sure you breastfeed in a soft and safe space because you may fall asleep. Of course, M&H close things out with an “Award in the Alcove.”
But before that, they thank a Patron and share the incredible community and support $20/month Patrons enjoy: a private consultation with M&H and monthly live group sessions for Q&A, sharing, learning. Wow!
