I am looking for good books and others info on vegan breestfeeding. I have been going for 4 months now and feeling good, yet would like to check in with other mummies and hear there stories. ing :bf vegan :2onebeautifulboybaby:
i was vegan the first few months of BF (for years before that too) but decided to eat organic dairy and eventually i was a total omni again!
it was tough but i am glad i made the change. now at 27mo of nursing, i am trying to go back to a mostly vegan diet w/ some fish.
i found it easy during pregnancy but while nursing i felt very tired, sick and was underweight. i always ate healthy vegan food (not a lot of processed crap) but it just didnt cut it. sorry i dont mean to be negative at all, just sharing
I'm a vegan, so this caught my eye. However, I see that you are new to MDC elcome: and you have posted this in the "Personal Growth" forum rather than the "nutrition and good eating" forum. Perhaps the mod will move it for you or you can repost it there? Otherwise you're not going to get many replies here.
