The Keto diet is really popular right now, and many mamas have had a lot of success with it, until they start breastfeeding. Doing the Keto diet while breastfeeding is safe and possible if you follow it correctly. With changes in hormones and nutritional needs while breastfeeding, there are some modifications you need to make to your Keto diet, to ensure you can keep up your milk supply and lose weight. If you make the proper changes to your Keto diet while breastfeeding, you can almost effortlessly lose the baby weight while breastfeeding, and experience no issues with your milk supply!  I personally don’t follow the keto diet completely. I believe in fruits, veggies, proteins and fats for myself, with a wide range of variability on higher-sugar carbs like fruit. The reason this works for me is because I am a runner. As a runner, I burn more carbs, so…

Postpartum nutrition is really important. And when I say really, I mean it is something that can make or break your healing, energy levels, milk supply and more. I am super passionate about postpartum nutrition because it is the key to keeping both mama and baby healthy after birth. I’ve been slowly working on starting a movement here at The Postpartum Cure, pushing mamas to learn what good, healing nutrition looks like, and why it is important after birth. The medical community is taking notice, and I am so excited to now be working with doctors and OBGYNS to help provide more resources and care after birth. I personally was handed a sheet of simple exercises to do for healing, and offered whatever I wanted to eat from the hospital menu…that was my experience with postpartum care and healing. If you want even more nutrient advice for postpartum healing and…

Most new mommies are very eager to lose weight fast once baby arrives, but are worried that if they drop calories or weight too quickly, they will also lose their milk supply.

Losing the baby weight, or at least some of it by 6 weeks postpartum is entirely possible, and not necessarily super difficult if you make some easy and simple changes to your diet and habits. Working out isn’t really an option before your 6-week check up and clearance (though there are some awesome healing workouts you can do!), but eating a nutrient-dense diet is really important to your milk supply as well as losing weight.

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…
