Breastfeeding and Brittle Nails

Recommended Posts

Hi mamas, 

I am 4 months postpartum, EBF, and on day 6 of Whole 30.  My nails were brittle after the baby was born, and now I'm noticing they're brittle again.  

Also - the "moons" on my nails seem much darker than usual.  Or the white part is white, but the part above that is very pink. 


Does anyone know what this means?  Does it point to a nutritional deficiency?

Hi Kerry,

Did you find a solution to this? I'm on Day 3 and find that my nails are brittle as well. I'm wondering if the lack of calcium and vitamin D is the cause of it. My girl is 6 months old so considering taking my materna vitamins to help up my nutrients.
