    Protein While Breast feeding

    My wife and I just had our baby about 6 weeks ago, and she really wants to start to get back into shape so I started training her. I know that you have to be careful what you consume while breast feeding, She loves muscle milk and myoplex RTD. Is it okay to consume these while breast feeding? I only ask because I know that they both use a lot of chemicals in them. Any advice that you ladies can provide would be much appreciated!

    congrats! I had my baby 4 months ago...ok to answer your question I would stay away from that while you're nursing b/c you never know but you could always ask her doctor or contact la leche...what I do to help with protein and stuff is take slimfast...they have a slimfast powder designed to give you more protein...I think slimfast might be more trusted than protein powders...but always check with the doctor...and have her take it easy on the weights for a few more weeks...I didn't start lifting again until my daughter was about 3- 3 1/2months...I did cardio before that...you have to really ease back into b/c the body does not feel the same for awhile

    You might get more responses on this. I knew a pro figure competitor who breastfed her baby all the while preparing for a contest. I know she consumed protein at almost every meal.

    I breastfed (1 yr) and drank protein shakes. I also started lifting lightly (15 rep range) about 4 weeks after having my baby boy via emergency C-section. There's nothing wrong with drinking protein shakes whilst breastfeeding, protein shakes are/should be JUST protein + a sweetener. It's the artificial sweeteners I'd be more concerned about rather than just the protein itself. The protein is something we all need. Anyway, I now have a happy and very healthy (big for his age) 2 year old. Just get in the habit of reading the ingredients list on products, if you don't know what something in the ingredient list is, then I'd question consuming it. But beware, that's the way our society is today, everything is processed and over-processed and you don't know what half the ingredients are then come to find out later a lot of these mysterious ingredients are not good for us. Just use common sense, you're feeding another human being just like yourself, don't eat anything YOU shouldn't be eating and you should be fine.

    Oh, and a good rule of thumb that is healthy for both YOU and the baby is to eat as close to nature as possible, in other words try to avoid foods in boxes and cans, generally speaking. Eat foods that would grow in your garden and meat from livestock you'd have on a farm (or catch in the sea in my case heh).

    Oh and make sure she gets cleared by her doctor before starting any vigorous exercise especially if she wasn't previously exercising.

    ...while the rest of the breastfeeding mothers in this country are eating fast food hamburgers, french fries, pizza and fried chicken...LOL

    I can't think of any reason a protein supplement would be hazerdous to consume while you're breastfeeding, unless you consider the artificial sweeteners as BWC mentioned...of course, most breastfeeding mothers don't have an issue with diet coke or anything like that SOOOOOOOOOO.......you're definitely ahead of the game in even thinking of these things. I'm sure you're baby will be grateful for your concern.

    Yes, you can take protein shakes or RTDs while breastfeeding. They would be fine even if you were pregnant, and you have a lot more latitude when breastfeeding.

    When pregnant, the route of transmission of anything dubious is mother's blood to baby's blood, with a bit of filtering by the placenta. When you are breastfeeding, the route of transmission is mother's blood to breasts to breast milk to baby's stomach to baby's blood, with lots of opportunities to filter out anything undesirable along the way. The breasts do a great job of keeping out dangerous substances.

    In any case, why should protein supplements be a problem? Most of them are just milk proteins with a few added vitamins.

    Coingratulations on the baby, happy nursing, and use this window of opportunity when Nature isn't trying to hang onto that hip-and-thigh fat. It's there to feed the baby, so make the most of your 6 week old fat-sucker.
    65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs = keto.

    While this is true, a lot of them are mainly just whey, which is the main ingredient in milk based baby formulas. My wife used Optimum Nutrition 100% whey during and after the pregnancies of both of my sons. They are both quite healthy.
