Breastfeeding will actually help you shed some of those unwanted pounds. Milk production burns upwards of 200 to 500 extra calories a day--that's the equivalent of running more than three kilometres! It's very tempting to cut calories immediately after delivering, but that can negatively affect your milk stores. You need a minimum of 1,800 calories a day to produce enough milk to keep Junior sated--and the healthier those calories, the better. Eating well will also help your body heal. And continue to take a good-quality pregnancy supplement postpartum. I like FemMED Pregnancy, which is dairy-, egg-, gluten- and yeast-free and contains no artificial colours and flavours.
