Best diet to assist weight loss for mum and good nourishment for babywhile breastfeeding?
Nov 14, 2016 15:01 PM
Thank you for your message. I wonder how old your baby is? We know from lots of research evidence that breastfeeding naturally assists a mother to lose weight. The extra reserves that are laid down in a pregnant woman’s body are designed to be mobilised into her breastmilk when her baby arrives. As it takes 9 months to prepare these reserves it can take a similar time for them to disappear! We also know from research that it isn’t a good idea for a new mother’s body to lose these reserves too quickly.
