Sengün Sangu: A good and correct nutrition after birth helps to protect the mother's body, provide weight control and produce more and more quality milk for the baby. Breastfeeding mothers need a varied nutrition program. A healthy, adequate and balanced diet is needed, where the mother's weight remains constant and the vitamins and minerals are abundant. Because the milk that the mother secretes is a product of the nutrients she receives. The nutrients necessary for milk secretion should be taken in addition to the mother's own requirement. During breastfeeding, mothers should not take a low-calorie weight loss diet and should not rush to return to their old body weights.

: How is it appropriate to lose weight after childbirth?
Sengün Sangu: It is considered normal to lose 2 pounds each month if more than the recommended weight has been gained during pregnancy, but more than 2 pounds a month is not correct. Therefore, diet and drug applications that promise fast weight loss should be avoided. The weight loss diet of the puerperal is not recommended. But be careful not to eat excessively sweet and floury foods such as Turkish delight, sherbet, oily and sugary calories. Because sugary foods don't make milk, but they lose weight. The program also includes a special nutrition and diet program for non-breastfeeding mothers. However, it takes some more time for non-breastfeeding mothers to gain weight control and to lose weight during pregnancy.
