    jennicap got a reaction from JennyCaughron in Is the Whole30 safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women?   
    I am still breastfeeding my 25 month old, he gets the bulk of his needs from food at this point and we only have 1-2 sessions a day but I feel like I have more milk now than I did before starting the Whole 30. I'm not counting calories I am eating when I'm hungry but I have been drinking green tea like its going out of style and it is doing wonders for my skin, my energy, my milk supply! I drink 4-6 glasses a day! If my son nurses more in a day I find myself hungry so I eat more that day, same goes when I have a hard exercise day, I eat more. I think anyone who eats and drinks correctly shouldn't have a problem doing this at any time. I am looking into the Paleo Primal diet after this is over and I don't see myself going back to packaged foods and grains any time soon. I've even been converting my son to a more primal diet, I think it will be so beneficial for him! He's been organic/grass fed since birth on everything he eats but I've switched him to coconut milk and he loves the stuff!

    I'm still breastfeeding my almost-21 month old and am on my third Whole30 with no apparent difference in milk supply. However, my caveat is that I had already pump weaned at work and she was down to nursing 3-4 times a day by the time I started my first Whole30 last fall, so my experience may be different from a nursing mom of a younger baby.
    We're planning to try for a second child later this year and while I intend to stick mostly to Whole30 principles once I become pregnant, I'll be playing it by ear as it happens.
