Working Out As A Breastfeeding Mom

Working Out As A Breastfeeding Mum

Whether it is the media, friends, family, or just how we feel about ourselves, new moms often feel pressure to lose weight fast after having a baby. One mom recently posted pictures of her lunging and doing other exercises while feeding her two week old baby, and as expected the Internet was alight with commentary.

Sharny Kieser is a mother of six beautiful children. Within two weeks of the birth of her most recent child, she was snapped squatting and performing other exercises while nursing feeding her. While some moms criticized Kieser for her actions, many others admired her, or were completed mystified by how she was able to accomplish such a task.

It’s All About Determination

Kieser is no stranger to having to multitask on a daily basis. With six young children constantly underfoot, she is accustomed to needing to adapt from what a “normal” person would do to what she has to do to compliment her needs on a daily basis.

It’s All About The Right Gear

In order to facilitate being able to feed while exercising, it is necessary for a new mom to have the right clothing to be able to work out how she sees fit.

  • Low Support and Impact Sports Bras: Appropriate for walking, yoga and strength training (like squats)

  • Medium Support and Impact Sports Bras: Skiing, cycling and moderate hiking

  • High Support and Impact Sports Bras: Running, aerobics and mountain biking

The Mummy Angle

It is important for new moms to consider the fact that their breasts may change size during a workout, particularly if she is breastfeeding. Depending on the activity in which you are involved, support which ranges anywhere from medium to high is best, and bras with stretchy material on top of the breast are best for breastfeeding moms.

Staying Comfortable While Working Out

Working out is one thing, but looking chic and fashionable while doing so is a whole other issue for new moms. Regardless of what concerns you may have, our extensive line of nursing t-shirts and tank tops here at Peachymama are perfect for looking fab while working out.
