    tinyflame got a reaction from 2TmamaRN in Is the Whole30 safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women?   
    It is amazing seeing moms who are well into "extended" (normal biological:)) breastfeeding!
     
    I am on Day 5 of my first W30 - nursing my 16 mo daughter -  and haven't experienced any of the symptoms described in the W30 timeline. I'm wondering if this is because my sleep is not ideal...my daughter wakes to eat multiple times a night, I work full-time outside the home, and I have a 5 yo son. Life is full   I have not committed to any sort of regular exercise plan since my daughter's birth because I know that an exercise program is secondary to sleep.
     
    Will my lack of sleep (avg 5-7 hours a night) and lack of exercise seriously impede any benefits of the whole30? I've pretty much accepted that at this season of my life things are just more challenging, but I'd like to hear what the experts say.

    I LOVE seeing all the full-term nursing moms!!  

    Natasha, I experienced similar results this morning, my day two.  I'm tandem nursing my 3 year old and 1 year old.  I think I just didn't eat enough yesterday.  It went away after I had breakfast.
