August 2017 Hot Flashes

National Breastfeeding Month

Breastfeeding reaps multiple benefits for both the mother and the infant, but interestingly choosing to breastfeed can help a mother return to her pre-baby weight. Overall, it takes 1,000 calories a day to produce breast milk. Mothers are advised to eat an extra 500 calories while the body will dip into reserves it created during pregnancy to compensate for the rest. However, mothers must make sure to consume those extra calories each day or the body will go into starvation mode.
