Congratulations! Now that you just had your baby, what are you going to do next??? My guess is you're probably not going to start training for a marathon or even a 5K anytime soon. But, what I can tell you after hearing time and time again from so many of the mamas I've worked with over the years is that there definitely comes a point when "losing the baby weight" and "getting back in shape" eventually becomes part of the dialogue.
You know the saying. “You are what you eat.” Now, as a breastfeeding mama, you and your baby are what you eat! While many professionals might argue that the food mama eats has no effect on the quality or quantity of her milk, studies suggest that good nutrition does play a role in the richness and abundance – especially with fats and other key nutrients – of your milk.
Ahhhh, waiting for that first tooth to pop. I don’t know if it’s more painful for baby or mom. Okay, maybe us moms are not in any actual pain (unless baby tried to use your breast as her own personal chew toy – ouch!), but the drooling, fussing and inconsistent sleep and feeding patterns that often go along with teething are enough to definitely test our patience.
