Is Fasting An Option For Breastfeeding Mothers?

It's always best to get the information first!

It is not recommended for nursing mothers to fast as breastfeeding needs more calories. Those calories are used to provide nutrients to the baby and if you’re low on calories, it could affect your milk supply and energy level – both of which are not good for nursing moms as you are the baby's main source of nutrition.

Nursing mothers can incorporate fasting in their diets during the later stages of breastfeeding, where you’re feeding less often and you’re not the primary source of your baby’s nutrition anymore.

Until you’re done breastfeeding, it's safest to focus on a healthy diet and exercise plan.
