Fifty-three percent of our respondents said they are having sex. While 16 percent of mamas waited between three to six months to have sex, 7 percent waited more than a year. New moms are navigating big changes—to their body, their relationship, their life—so taking a sex break may not be surprising.
When my first son was a baby, I breastfed in private. In the first few months of his life, we saw the insides of more dressing rooms and restrooms than I care to count.

As the recipient of the Massachusetts Young Dietitian of the Year award, she believes in making healthy eating simple, sustainable, and delicious. Maintaining healthy eating habits while breastfeeding will not only keep you and your baby well nourished, it will also support her developing and lasting taste for healthy foods.
