Exercise and breastfeeding

Breastfeeding in the News

June 20, 2012 – GMA News reports on a new study published in Pediatrics that found that breastfeeding mothers who exercise do not inhibit the growth of their babies. Researchers reviewed four clinical trials done between 1994 and 2009. In each, researchers recruited sedentary breastfeeding mothers, then randomly assigned half of them to a moderate exercise program. The other half were to remain inactive. In two of the studies, the mothers also cut calories to lose weight. A total of 170 mothers participated in the four studies. On average, babies of exercising mothers in the studies gained slightly more weight than the babies of mothers not physically active. Researchers said this could be due to chance. The researchers concluded that mothers could safely exercise while breastfeeding.
