Boobie Body and Milk Dust are both breastfeeding protein powders on the market for new mommies. Choosing between Boobie Body and Milk Dust can be a difficult choice if you aren’t sure the difference in nutrient-value, lactation power and taste. I thought it would be super helpful if I went over some of those for you, so you can make the best decision for YOU! I think it is important to note that I don’t think Boobie Body is a competitor in any way to my Milk Dust. I don’t think there is one product that is best for every body, and it is wonderful for breastfeeding mamas to have a few options to choose from, so they can find the best product for their body. 4 High-Quality Protein Powders for Breastfeeding Mamas I am going to compare the products in terms of taste, nutrient value, and lactation power.

Crockpot season is here, and there are so many amazing crockpot recipes that are perfect for breastfeeding mamas wanting to give their milk supply a boost, while also still losing the baby weight.

It is free, and it will jump start your weight loss without compromising your milk supply! Make sure to grab that to go along with these crock pot recipes, and you will be feeling amazing this fall and winter. A few important things to note is that these recipes are full of nutrients, and they are also lightened up. The reason is because nourishing your body with many different fruits and vegetables is really important to fulling heal and produce breast milk. My goal,…

Breastfeeding a new baby in the fall and winter is one of my favorite memories. Snuggling up on the couch with my little one and a cup of soup in my hand is so relaxing. All of my babies are fall and winter babies, so I have a lot of experience in losing the baby weight during the crisp and cold months while still breastfeeding. All of my babies were born in the Pacific Northwest, though we live in Florida now. I have a very popular 10-day detox plan for breastfeeding mamas to get off sugar and start losing weight, and I wanted to also create a seasonal plan for the pre-holiday months. These are recipes that will help you lose the baby weight because they are clean, full of nutrients and light in calories, yet also help you keep your milk supply up.&nb Of course many of the breakfast…

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…

I lost all the extra weight by 6 weeks postpartum after my third pregnancy, without a whole lot of effort or dieting because I’ve finally got the weight loss while breastfeeding thing down. I know breastfeeding a new baby is a really difficult time to lose weight, but it is also a really important time to truly eat the best diet you can. Breastfeeding and postpartum healing require extra nutrients, both for mama and baby, so cleaning up your diet, and eating better is actually really important! Changing my mindset was key to my postpartum weight loss by 6 weeks for the third time around. I wasn’t thinking of my clean eating as a diet, but as nourishment for my body and baby. Making this change, will make my list of tips seem completely achievable for you too! How much weight can you actually lose by 6 weeks postprtum? As…

Weight watchers is a highly popular weight loss program, that like many, may or may not be the best choice while breastfeeding. As a fitness professional and nutrition coach, I have some thoughts on weight watchers for breastfeeding mamas. If done correctly, weight watchers could be an awesome plan to really help you target that weight loss. If done incorrectly, your milk supply can drop with your weight. Maybe you’ve been trying to lose weight while breastfeeding with all sorts of plans and programs, and you are thinking weight watchers might be a good next try? Well, I will quickly go over what weight watchers is, then how to do it correctly, so you can use it to lose weight without losing your milk supply. How Does Weight Watchers Work? Weight Watchers is a method of counting calories, but simpler because you count points, rather than calories. This means less…

Counting macros for weight loss while breastfeeding can be a very effective way to lose weight, maintain muscle, and completely change your body after baby. I personally do not count macros, and preach a program based on eating clean and learning real hunger and full cues. I believe this is really important for long-term success, BUT a macro plan can provide the structure a new mom needs to stay within her calories, and making the most of those calories. Let’s look at what macro counting is, and how it can be very beneficial for postpartum weight loss while breastfeeding. What is Macro Counting? Counting your macros is a more complex way of counting calories. You start with your daily caloric needs to maintain your weight, then decrease that number to reduce your overall weight. Within that total, let’s say it is 1500 calories, you will eat specific ratios of carbs,…

These pumpkin protein lactation bars will seriously curb your cravings for all things pumpkin, as well as boost your milk supply! There is a secret weapon in these bars, which I will go over that includes a lactation blend of ingredients that are all known to increase lactation. These bars are also healthy, low carb, and delicious, so if you are trying to lose the baby weight, and struggling with sugar cravings, these will help! In my program, I teach mamas how to eat while breastfeeding to lose weight, and sugar cravings are one of the hardest challenges to eating healthy while breastfeeding. Basically, sugar cravings happen when we crave specific nutrients, and as breastfeeding mamas we need more nutrients ,so we tend to have more cravings. This isn’t a bad thing, it just means we need to eat as nutrient-dense as possible. I have some awesome recipes for breastfeeding…
