How to Exercise while Breastfeeding

After you've had your 6-8 week check with your Doctor you may feel ready to start exercising to help you re-charge, re-balance and re-strengthen. If you are breastfeeding this does not have to prevent you from doing so.
Here are our top 3 tips on how to exercise while breastfeeding:-
 
Feed before you exercise
Exercise may stimulate milk flow (arm movements in particular) so try feeding your baby before you exercise.
 
Wear a supportive bra
Ensure your breasts are well supported with a good sports bra and you may want to wear a second bra underneath and breast pads too such as Lansinoh breast pads.
 
Avoid exercises or stretches which require you to lie on your front
Stay comfortable by avoiding prone exercises and stretches altogether or place a rolled up towel underneath your breasts to help reduce pressure.
