Breast milk metabolism

Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk metabolism


Avatar f tn 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 n tn He had a serious GI bug, couldn't keep even breast milk down, and he vomited every 20-30m for hours and hours. When we went to the ER, he wasn't dehydrated but his labs were way off. He remain in the hosp for several days on IV fluids. Nothing since those first two incidents. The metab. specialist advised us to have a jar of frosting on hand, should he start with a GI thing again. So, all this makes me wonder.
Avatar f tn It is very difficult o assess the total calories a mother needs for breast feeding because some babies need more milk than others and maternal metabolism too differs from mother to mother. On an average a breast-feeding mother needs about 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day. Hence, do not go for a sudden drop in calories in first 3-4 months. It is important to start exercising during this time as this will help tone up the body and also help shed extra pounds.

Avatar n tn I am a Pedi Nurse Practitioner. We warn parents not to put child on whole milk until 12 months due to the fact that whole milk doesn't have the iron and other vitamins a growing infant needs. Also, the fat content in breast and formula milks are high and of the right content for proper brain development. What the others list above are also correct but the main focus is the metabolism and the growth of the child at this very important stage.
Avatar n tn btw you are also gaining liquid (the older baby gets the more milk you produce) so your breasts are probably getting heavier. just keep up the good work and try not to get frustrated. oh and put the scale away for a while.
Avatar f tn When you breast feed your baby your metabolism is impacted b/c your body is making milk. I was frequently hungry b/c of a higher metabolism. I did loose all the baby weight plus some. I have friends though who did not experience the hunger and weight loss I did. It's different for everyone. You should definitely eat healthy b/c whatever you eat is passed to the baby. Drinks need to be considered too (caffeine and alcohol).

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 n tn com/b/a/153176.htm Both say that you can't pass the antibodies to your baby through breast milk. Both of my sisters who have children have/had Hashi's and they have their children's thyroid function tested annually (family history of thyroid cancer) and their thyroids are normal. My mother has Hashi's as do all 4 of my sisters - I do not though. Autoimmune conditions can be hereditary but don't appear to be something that can be transmitted through breast milk.

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?1217004902 ) there'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 But certainly your weight or size doesn't have an affect on your breast milk I wouldn't think. I have a friend that had twins and since she breastfed double the babies, she had a very high supply of breast milk, but it just wasn't practical for her, she ended up switching to formula because it's hard enough with ONE baby during a growth spurt, you're literally feeding sometimes every hour or thirty minutes, two babies is wayy harder.
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?
661090 tn?1271391261 Unless you gave one identical twin formula and another Breast Milk?? Our baby (All breast milk) was born average then took awhile to put on weight and then passed all of the babies born at or before her in weight and height. She is a chunker. She has been in the 75% and above for weight and 90-95% in height since 4 months. She will be a year next month and has been walking for a couple of weeks. Instead of slimming down like I always hear, though. She has definetly gained more weight.

Avatar f tn Additionally, women with breast, uterine, and ovarian cancers should not take milk thistle. This is how much I know about Milk Thistle. It is VERY GOOD for people who have Hep C. and there is some new news out about Milk Thistle helping stop cancer from replicating. Like I said before, look it up for yourself. But I hope this helps and gives you some good ideas.

250155 tn?1485299539 I figure it's because my metabolism has slowed down since I'm not producing milk any more. I've heard women say that breast feeding never helped them loose their baby weight - so in that regard I consider myself lucky!

Avatar f tn Drink formula, don't breast feed; drink warm milk before going to bed (leads to reflux disease and you shouldn't actually eat anything near going to bed); it prevents osteoporosis (for the magnesium reasons stated above, it actually increases it) -- well, the list is just too long to believe people are still buying into this stuff).
Avatar n tn I take a liquid vitamin I did take Adult one a day and it also hurt my stomach (red coating) Check the bottle is there a number to call? I think anything you take orally will go through the breast milk I know they say use green tea when trying to lose weight(have a box here un opened --thats doing alot of good eh!)
