Breastfeeding

Cheryl Loses Weight And Has Boosted Her Milk Supply

 

Hi there, I wanted to write in and share this delicious smoothie recipe and my story that I have travelled on on this great post pregnancy healthy eating and safe breastfeeding diet.Cheryl Loses Weight And Has Boosted Her Milk Supply

I have only drinking the Healthy Mummy Smoothies for a couple of weeks now and have already lost 2.5 kilos. When my little one was 10 weeks I was told he was “failing to thrive” due to his poor weight gain when he was 6 weeks old. Now he is gaining over 500grams a fortnight due my increased milk supply, which I can only put down to the smoothies! Amazing!!!

I am was this close to giving up breastfeeding due to my low milk supply and not satisfying him so I am thrilled I can continue to breastfeed. My energy levels have also increased dramatically. Thank you so much. I recommend the Healthy Mummy Range to everyone xx

Choc banana muffin shake
  • 2 tbsp chocolate Healthy Mummy Smoothie Mix
  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 2 tbsp crushed nuts
  • Half a banana
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Half a cup of ice
  • 200mls almond milk

Blend it all together and there you are! Yummy!!

Thank you everyone, Cheryl.
