Weight/Breastfeeding: While you are breastfeeding and you feel like you need to gain weight, do it by adding healthy calories to your meals. It's a good time to evaluate your diet for the health of you and your baby anyway. Add healthy calories like low fat greek yogurt, sweet potatoes, avocados, fruits, and low fat or nonfat milk. Remember to know your family medical history and still exercise and eat healthy while bf
