Re: Breastfeeding & Working Out/Losing Weight
Not only could the supplements contain something that's no good for your baby, but they could also contain something that's not good for your supply. A lot of weight loss supplements contain lots of caffeine, because it's a diuretic- that is, it makes you pee a lot, which means less water in your body, making you lighter when you step on the scale. But less water in your body- not great for making milk!
There's a really good book out there called "Eat Well, Lose Weight, While Breastfeeding." I think Eileen Behan is the author. Definitely worth a look!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
