Ramadan is around the corner, I've been asked several times about how to maintain milk supply during this special month.
I certainly understand.
Doing breastfeeding and fasting Ramadan at the same time is certainly not easy.
Outside Ramadan, I would drink every single time I remember, or get some healthy snacks whenever I feel hungry, no restriction at all.
But during Ramadan, you have a huge shift in your intake. Instead of eating 3x a day, now you are eating heavy meals only during suhoor and iftar.
You no longer carry your water bottle every day during the day.
Obviously, it is normal to feel worried if you can continue producing enough milk while fasting Ramadan.
I've been there, too =).
So, if you still cannot decide whether to fast or not during Ramadan and how to keep your supply up while fasting, here is my little advice.
