Can being dehydrated decrease milk supply?

Stay well hydrated: Dehydration can decrease your supply and is generally not good for your own health. Sip water during your workout and rehydrate when you're done. Eat enough: While exercise can help you lose some of your baby weight, remember that breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day.

How can I increase my milk supply?

  • Nursing your baby often.
  • Nurse your baby at least 15 minutes at each breast.
  • Gently massage breast before and during feedings.
  • Use relaxation techniques to reduce stress and promote the flow of breast milk.
  • Provide skin to skin time with your baby for about 20 minutes after feeds.
