Is it good to use Protein Powder while breastfeeding?

Yes, it’s important to be consuming around an extra 25 grams of protein a day or more while breastfeeding. Protein powder offers an easy way to supplement your protein intake without additional fats or carbohydrates.

Having said this, it’s also important to be consuming enough nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Where possible you should be consuming nutrient rich whole foods. If you feel a supplement is necessary to increase your protein intake, you should consult with your OBGYN or health care professional.
