Postpartum breastfeeding can burn 300 to 500 calories a day.
One of the reasons for the creation of breast milk. It is a special blend that consists of substances that enhance the immune system and vitamin necessary for the growth and development of the baby. Since the body does not always produce the ‘combination’, the body is constantly in the ‘action’ in order to produce enough milk to meet the needs of the baby.
Additionally influenced by the energy that you give your baby while breastfeeding. Do not store so many calories just for yourself, but transmit them to the child. Because you, if you are not getting the extra calories, you wil begin to lose weight. Another factor is that moms are very busy because of sudden changes in their lives.
However, according to both women who are predisposed to be obese or have accumulated during the pregnancy too much weight, your weight will not only return to breastfeeding. Although breastfeeding will help to adapt the nutrition, as well as physical activity.
