Exercise and Breastfeeding
Lets Begin by Exposing the Myth Right off the Bat!
Exercising while breastfeeding does not impact your milks supply, so rest assured mama bear you are free to break a sweat to your hearts desire! Just a few tips to go along with that statement:
-Breastfeed your little one before working out to avoid engorged boobs during your sweat session.
- Most importantly make sure you are staying well hydrated before, during, and after your workout as instructed by experts from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist (ACOG).
- Lastly do note that after your workout lactic acid levels in your breast milk may change causing a temporarily change in your milks flavor but not to worry it does not affect its nutritional benefits.
