500 Calories Burned by Breastfeeding
Here’s yet another incentive to breastfeed: you will slim down faster! According to a New York Department of Health campaign, you can burn 500 calories per day from breastfeeding.
The $1.6 million health education campaign was launched last week to educate new mothers on the health benefits of breastfeeding. In addition to the health benefits to mom and baby, the campaign also boasts convenience of breastfeeding over formula feeding because there are no bottles to wash and sanitize.
