However, you must remember that in the process of losing pregnancy weight you need to keep the following points in mind in order to maintain your milk supply…

  • According to Kelly Bonyata, after 2 months of giving birth to a baby, mums can start light exercising in order to shed those extra pounds and to retain their pre-pregnancy figure.

The most important aspect you need to remember is that in order to lose baby weight they need to eat very healthy having foods from all the food groups in order to get through their day.

Eating food that is low in calorie and the nutritional count will make lactating mothers feel drowsy, lethargic and tired all throughout the day. 

Following are some of the tips that can help you lose your baby weight and keep your milk supply up:

  • Eat foods that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids as these are an excellent source of energy. Further, foods rich in Omega-3s are known to fight depression and anxiety, common in mothers with newborn babies. According to Healthline, eating foods rich in Omega-3s is very important for lactating mothers as it helps promote brain growth and development in infants.
  • It is extremely important for you to avoid stress and get as much sleep as you can. Stress is related to weight gain, the more you are anxious and the more time you spend worried over little things such as the crying of your baby or the baby not sleeping enough, the more there are chances that you will end up gaining weight rather than losing it. Likewise, it is very important for lactating mothers to get enough sleep; a good night’s sleep will make you less anxious and tired and as a result, will help them in their weight loss journey.
  • The diet of a lactating mother should contain all the foods for the five main food groups: vegetables, fruit, grain, meats and poultry and the milk group. By taking healthy portions from each of the five food groups a lactating mother can ensure that her energy level remains steady through the day and that her body will have a regular supply of nutrients and vitamins needed to make milk.
