In brief: Orthostatic hypoteni

Orthostatic hypotension means--- lowering of BP with postural change and hence dizziness.
Seems like you need to increase your salt and water intake. Since you are breast feeding, your daily main entrance requirements are higher that nirmal healthy female of your age. Try taking in 3, l (per day ) of liquids in the form of chicken broth, milk, lemonade etc.
