Working and Runner mom while breast feeding

Heidi - posted on 01/18/2010 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi, I am a working mom (5 month old baby now)... I am also a runner. Working and Running while breastfeeding has been quite an experience! It has not been easy at all but at the same time it keeps me sane. I have heard many stories about how running could reduce the milk production, but so far in 5 months it has not been an issue for me. I am glad to share experiences or ideas if you have any.

I am only training for half marathons for now because my pace is about 10min miles and I do not want to be running for longer than 2.5 hours.... in about 4 months I will start training for a marathon.

Were you very physically active while you were pregnant?

I found that my milk supply dropped when I had a very active week (pushing my daughter in the pram for 1/2 - 1 hour at a time to try to get her to sleep). I am not normally that active so I think my body just couldn't do both things at once properly.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
