I stopped breastfeeding all but one feed per day about 6 weeks ago. Since then I have had a terrible cold constantly. It started around the time of the Royal wedding (April 29th) when I got a blocked ear, then it turned into a cold, which Evan got and recovered from, then turned into a terrible chesty cough. I was not ill once whilst I was breastfeeding from October to April, plus hadn't been ill since last Easter either. So can my illness and failure to recover be to do with stopping breastfeeding? Or could it be that my immune system is shot to shit and I'm really run down?
