Can I work out if I am a breastfeeding mother?
Exercise is good for everyone and breastfeeding mothers can work out, but they need to ensure they don’t lose too much water or too many electrolytes such as sodium and chloride (salt). Depending on how strenuously they exercise, it may help to drink electrolyte solutions before, during, and after exercise. Dark urine can be a sign that they need to drink more water. There is no evidence that exercise will harm babies or interfere with breastfeeding. Babies are nearly always happy to breastfeed after their mothers exercise.
