    hi girls,

    I am just wondering if there is any link between piles and breastfeeding..?
    My lo is 5 months old, and I keep having piles on and off.. SO annoying and painfull! I think I am not drinking enough... How much water are you having per day?
    Is anybody still having piles after 5 months?

    Thanks

    I don't think there is a link, probably more like you aren't getting enough fluids and are straining too much so that is causing the recurrence. Start drinking way more water (I find that crystal light is helping me sneak more water in, worth a shot) and eat more fibrous foods and hopefully that will help. :hugs:

    I'm drinking about 3 litres a day at the moment and still don't think it's enough! You definitely need to up your intake :flower:

    I try for 2-3+liters of water especially on hot days but somedays i know IM not drinking enough. I would increase your water and if that doesn't help more fiber should do the trick.
