Ten Tips for Running as a Nursing Mom

Posted on: May 8, 2012

A few months after Hannah was born, I started my journey as a runner. By the time she was 6.5 months, I started actively training for my first half marathon. During all that time, I breastfed.

Two weeks after Joseph was born, I started easing back into a workout routine. Then once he was 6 weeks old, I began actively training for my most recent half marathon. Again, all while breastfeeding.

Last week, I had a pregnant mom mention that she had been told you shouldn’t workout while nursing. She asked me my opinions.

Clearly, I think that not working out while nursing is completely nuts….
