Does exercise make a difference in the quality of your milk? I wasn't doing any until 2 weeks ago and I wasn't dieting either. I was eating a ton to be honest. My baby was waking once or twice a night. I started playing Just Dance on my wii for 30 mins a day. It makes me sweat but doesn't tire me out or anything. I also take long walks several times a week. Last week I have been counting my calories and keeping them around 1800-2000 net. I have lost a pound finally! My scale has been stuck for months. But now that I look back my lo's sleep started getting really crappy around that time. He started waking every 1.5-2 hours. He's now doing one 5 hour stretch and then every 2.5-3 hours so its not too bad but did I cause a drop in my supply? Should I start eating fattier again? His weight gain did slow, only 2 oz last week but he seems happy.
Just my experience, but with both babies, i resumed jogging and cycling on a daily basis once they turned two months. And in both cases, they have/are tracking along their percentile consistently in both weight and height.
As confident as i sound, i too constantly second-guess myself. But what reassures me is their nappy output. As long as your baby is pooing and weeing good amounts, milk supply wouldn't be an issue.
