Breast feeding after running

by Lynn

I started running as soon as my doctor gave me the ok to do so.

Before I started running, my baby fed well without any problems.

Once I started to run and then fed my baby, soon after he started getting irritable, crying and very gassy.

I was to the point of stopping the breast feeding, until a friend mentioned how it may be the lactic acid in my breast milk and that I should either feed him before my run, pump or wait to feed him a few hours after my run.

I tried that and it was like day and night, no more gas or crying. Lactic acid will cause problems in your baby's stomach, but a little adjustment will make it all better.
