1. A reasonable diet

After giving birth, you should have a balanced diet. Do not deliberately diet for weight loss. If dieting causes malnutrition, it will not only endanger the health of the mother, but also affect the quality of milk secretion, which is not conducive to the growth and development of the baby. At the same time, mothers should not eat too much during breastfeeding to avoid overnutrition and postpartum obesity. The postpartum diet should ensure a balanced intake of various nutrients in the food. Choose low-calorie foods and cooking methods, which can eat healthy and achieve the goal of weight loss.

2. Get enough rest

Lack of sleep can easily lead to an imbalance of hormone secretion in the body and abnormal metabolism, leading to obesity. For lactating women, lack of sleep can also affect milk secretion. Therefore, the postpartum mother must ensure adequate sleep.
