Health Tip: Breast-Feeding When You Have Diabetes

Health Tip: Breast-Feeding When You Have Diabetes

03/21/11

(HealthDay News) -- Breast-feeding comes with its own set of challenges, but the task is a bit more daunting if you have diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association suggests how to help prevent low blood sugar for breast-feeding moms:

  • Always have a snack before you nurse or while nursing.
  • Drink a glass of water or a decaffeinated beverage while you nurse.
  • Before you nurse, make sure there's a snack or medication nearby, in case your blood sugar drops too low.
  • Work with your dietitian and doctor to make sure your meals contain enough calories for you to breast-feed.
