Here is info on hat you can take while nursing with a migraine: http://kellymom.com/bf/can-i-breastfeed/meds/migraine-meds/
I would suspect your issue is hormone balance & it will take a bit of time for that to settle, but it will settle. I had terrible night sweats after both my kids for the same reason. In the meantime, hopefully that link will give you info on ways ot cope & what is safe to take. In & of itself, breastfeeding should not be related to migraines. It only deals with elevatin of prolactin & that is not typically associated with more migraines. It would be more likely attributable to the overall hormone botttoming out you are doing on multiple hormones right after birth.
And I am
sorry you were given bad info in the hospital. Try not to get upset with the mommas here when they give you good info, they aren't criticizing you
, they are criticizing the info/advice you were given. I have had multiple Drs & nurses tell me wrong stuff on breastfeeding & intact penis care. Just because they are "professionals" doesn't mean they are up to date with standard of care sadly. Maybe because I live in an area with a very high rate of circ & have boys & have the same people who try giving me BFing advice telling me I need to retract a newborn penis to care for it - it is easier
for me to see they don't know what they are talking about though & know that when I want solid info on nursing I stick to places like LLL & Dr Jack Newman.
