Question:Hi everyone. I'm in breastfeed for my baby. I want to reduce my weight. Any suggestions. If I reduce my weight. My milk supply will be decrease or not
Answer: On average, a breastfeeding mom needs an extra 300-500 calories per day than was needed to maintain her pre-pregnancy weight to keep a sturdy milk supply. Nursing your baby takes a lot of time and energy, so it's no surprise that breastfeeding burns calories.
Research tells us that both more frequent breastfeeding and breastfeeding longer than six months increases maternal weight loss. While nursing, you should not consume less than 1500-1800 calories per day, and most women should stay at the high end of this range.
