exercise while breastfeeding
Does exercise have an effect on breastfeeding?
Are there any harmful effects on the baby, through the breast milk, if I exercise everyday? What about the lactic acid?
Will it decrease my milk supply?
Breast feeding after running
(Albany NY )
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.

Infrared sauna & breastfeeding?
I'd like to use an infrared sauna, but it is not recommended for breastfeeding moms due to the detox that occurs & can affect the breast milk. I mostly breastfeed & supplement with formula occasionally.
Does anyone know how long these toxins stay in breast milk? Is it similar to alcohol? I'm just wondering if I could do the sauna & then not breastfeed for a certain amount of time?
