I want to ask what herbal remedies for weight loss are safe for breastfeeding mothers? Because I’m the type of person who can’t diet food. Ask for a solution, doctor. Thank you

Hello Ditta,


After gaining weight during pregnancy, a mother certainly wants to return her weight to what it was before pregnancy and moreover, she is often impatient. The period of breastfeeding itself actually requires a lot of energy where the food will later be not only for yourself but also as energy for breastfeeding where when breastfeeding a mother needs more calories every day.


Even so, breastfeeding mothers are still allowed to lose weight but avoid extreme and hasty weight loss because it can cause health problems. Try to lose between 0.5 and 1 kg of weight per week so that milk production is also safe.


Avoid using weight loss drugs because it is not impossible that unknown contents can be carried by breast milk and affect the child. Effort for a safe diet itself is to pay attention to incoming food intake which can reduce body weight without compromising nutritional intake for breastfeeding.


Some foods that can be consumed as a diet for breastfeeding mothers include:

Fruits
Nuts like kidney beans
Replace rice with brown rice
Eating low-fat dairy such as cheese and yogurt
Eat lean meat
Wheat bread
Green vegetable

In addition to paying attention to food intake, it is also necessary to exercise regularly to help the body get fitter, especially if you have a baby, of course, resting patterns will be more difficult and messy. Before starting a diet, you can also consult and check yourself and your baby to determine the right time to start the diet so that the baby also has no trouble getting breast milk.
