New Mom Needs Help!

Posted Jan 04 2010 1:24pm
Thank you so much for the inspiration all of you give me! I love this blog and I love to run, which pretty much means I love all of you. :) I'm mostly a reader- I don't post very often- but I need some advice and thought some of you may have been in the same boat at some point...
I just had my third baby three months ago. I've been running off and on since then, but with the cold weather and the holidays I've been a bit lazy about getting back into my running routine. Now that spring training time is here and a half marathon around the corner, I'm getting more serious.
Which brings me to my problem... when I really start to run consistently and work hard on eating healthy foods my milk supply drops WAY down. I cut back on running and increase my calories and my milk supply comes back up (as does my weight...) It is so frustrating! I don't cut my calories too much- mostly I'm just cutting out desserts, excess sugar, etc.
Have any of you had problems nursing a wee one and running? Any advice?
Thank you!!
