Avatar f tn My metabolism was through the roof when I was nursing, I ate all the time and was always super thirsty. You could also contact the HMBA (I think it is) - it's a human milk bank that combines breast milk from multiple women, dehydrates it and I think might send it over seas. I contacted them with an excess supply but they couldn't use mine as I took baby aspirin. Are you freezing the milk flat? that helped save a ton of room for me.
Avatar m tn I agree, nobody knows how that chlorogenic acid may affect the baby and how much is transferred thru the breast milk, u'll have to wait till after u done breastfeeding, I really want to loose my baby weight too but baby comes first :)
Avatar f tn If you aren't consuming enough calories and fat it can decrease your milk production and it decreases how much fat is in your milk. It's important while breast feeding to eat a balanced diet that includes healthy fats. If you don't feel like eating full meals try having a few snacks throughout the day. Oatmeal is a good choice because it's healthy and can increase your milk production.
Avatar f tn if she is getting breast milk there really is no need for whole milk. plus, the immune benefits of breast milk are still there. as for the sleeping thing...

304653 tn?1217001302 s the digestibility of breast milk with very little waste. has anyone ever had a baby constipated on breast milk? haven't seen that thread yet. (i'll take projectile poop in a baby over constipation and discomfort anyday) the reduction in chance of allergies because you put off introducing foreign proteins. very few babies are intolerant of breastmilk, but so many babies on formula have problems and need to switch to other forumlas or soy. etc...
Avatar f tn As long as you're eating to hunger and thirst, it really doesn't matter your size, it may just be healthy for you. Have you ever had your thyroid levels checked though? You may have an overactive metabolism, or hyperthyroidism that may affect breastfeeding if not properly controlled. I have the opposite, hypothyroidism, and I'm on medicine daily for it. But certainly your weight or size doesn't have an affect on your breast milk I wouldn't think.
518733 tn?1333017015 i been told that exercise while you are feeding can make the baby reject the breast and also dry up your milk! Im realy wanna lose my baby fat but wondered if it was safe?breastfeeding my baby is more important to me! is it safe?
Avatar f tn Hi I just gave birth 3months ago and have put on 50 pounds during the pregnancy. I am counting calories but am always hungry which is preventing me from sticking with a diet. As a result, am seriously considering taking the prescription pill (phentermine) to help supress my appetite. My question is, is it save to take this pill while breastfeeding?
Avatar f tn Everyone who mentions weight has to be subjected to my silly El Dave Diet plan. What it is, is, you only eat every other day. On the "off" days you drink milk. I went from 240 lbs. to 160 lbs. in five months that way, and I'm an old fellow with an old fellow's sluggish metabolism. I realize that's not really an answer to your question, but since I like to type, there it is.
Avatar f tn and today i gave it too him but its very watery. is that normal for breast milk. he usually has milk run out of the corner of his mouth a little bit and its very white but when i gave him the bottle that had been in the fridge it was more clear and watery. i feel like its not as good as if i just feed him from my breast.
Avatar f tn When will you start to get milk in your breast? I am 31 weeks and have yet to get mine, it makes me nervous cause I plan on breast feeding.
5612058 tn?1373576034 Enough wet and poopy diapers and if the baby is thriving. Breastfeeding is a supply and demand thing so just let baby eat and you will produce enough. Make sure you drink water and stay hydrated.
