One of the biggest concerns for breastfeeding mamas with a healthy diet is a gassy baby. Many mamas seem to believe that the healthy foods they are eating are causing their baby to be super gassy and fussy. My middle child was the fussiest baby, and every night I had to hold him for hours, or he would just cry. There are many reasons that newborn babies are gassy, and food isn’t necessarily the main culprit, though allergies can play a role. If you are trying to eat a healthy diet and consuming lots of fruits, veggies, oatmeal and other potentially gassy foods, you could be thinking that is the cause of your baby’s gas and upset tummy. Let’s look into what is proven to cause a gassy and fussy newborn baby: First, there is no actual research that foods eaten by the mother get into breast milk, and then…

Balancing hormones after pregnancy consists mainly of a healthy diet, supplemented with some herbs to help regulate hormone production for breastfeeding, healing and recovering after being pregnant. Luckily, many foods have beneficial effects on balancing postpartum hormones, and I am going to go over them here because I believe in nutrient-dense foods. I created The Postpartum Cure as a program to help guide mamas into healing postpartum through food and patience. Many mamas end up craving sugar while breastfeeding, and find themselves dealing with cravings at certain times of the month. This is really difficult to manage if you are trying to lose weight, breastfeeding and function without screaming at any one. Add on the limited sleep, and it is a recipe for one unhappy mama. I wrote a post on specific herbs and supplements you can take to help with hormones. That is a great read too, after looking…

Losing weight while breastfeeding is often times a completely overwhelming task, full of difficulties with postpartum hormones, lack of sleep, a new baby to care for, and intense cravings and hunger while breastfeeding. Breastfeeding changes the game for weight loss in so many ways, what once worked great, may not work as well now. Because hormones change so much, stress goes up, and our sleep goes down, it can seem impossible to focus on losing weight and eating healthy while breastfeeding a new baby. Many mamas lose patience and jump into diets and plans hoping that it will just help them get a little of the weight off. Each day the scale says the same number, or worse, it goes up!

Deciding what to eat while breastfeeding, to ensure you have a healthy milk supply can be overwhelming. Add on top of that trying to lose weight, and any sort of breastfeeding diet plan can quickly go out the window. I’ve breastfed three babies, and had to lose the weight three times now. Most of my weight loss was strictly diet, because let’s be real, it is really hard to get a work out in with a new baby. I had a 3, 2 and newborn for a while, so walking was about all I did. Your diet is what is going to make or break both your milk supply and your weight loss. That is why I want to help you learn to create your own, so if you can feel great, let go of the extra weight from pregnancy and feed your baby with lots of healthy milk. I…
