Dear Breastfeeding Mommy
Congratulations on the birth of your baby, you must be so thrilled esp because it was difficult to conceive. Because this baby is so special and you want to give him or her the very best in life by breastfeeding as long as possible, I would like to recommend that you visit a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), to help you with a slimming diet that does not dry up your milk and also provides all the nutrients you both need to be healthy and strong. If possible start doing some moderate exercise such as putting baby in the pram or in a holder on your back and going for a walk every day. The exercise will stimulate your metabolism and help with the weightloss.
Enjoy your dear baby
