Bouncing Back While Breastfeeding

Baby Booster was designed to be a support system for you and your baby while you're pregnant, nursing, or trying to get back into your old jeans. We love the answer to this question that the ladies at La Leche League answered:

"How can I lose weight and stay healthy while breastfeeding?

Many women would like to return to their pre-pregnancy weight as soon as possible after birth. It can take several months or even a year to achieve this. Part of the weight that a pregnant women gains is an "energy deposit" to meet the extra caloric demands of breastfeeding. It is consumed gradually while the mother nourishes her child.

It is wise to wait until the baby is at least two months old before making a specific effort to lose weight. A women’s body needs about this much time to recover from the birth and establish a good milk supply. Often, a woman loses weight without specific effort during this time.

A woman who is breastfeeding should lose weight slowly. Every mother needs enough energy and nutrients to be healthy, active, and able to care for her child or children. Ideally, she should not lose more than about one to two pounds per week (two kg a month)."

One of the reasons we founded Baby Booster was because there was a lack of information and availability of safe products for pregnant and nursing women. Use Baby Booster and our partners as a resource, whereever you are in your journey. Rest easy knowing that we took the guesswrok out and developed a safe alternative for you. We verify and made sure that all of our partners are certified and credible before we established a relationship. Your focus should be on your baby. Baby Booster is here to help
