I am a new mom to a 7 week old son. I'd like to know if alfalfa is safe to use while breastfeeding. If so, I would love to learn what success moms have had with their alfalfa use. To the best of my knowledge, I have an A+ blood type. Like most new moms, I am concerned over maintaining a healthy, steady, milk supply so that my son can continue to grow and mature healthfully. I would also love to hear from postpartum moms about your success with body brushing to help with reducing inches. How long did it take (on average) for you to see results with consistent use of the alfalfa and/or body brushing?
I am a 35 years old mom who works full-time outside of the home. I am 5 ft 8 3/4 inches. I weight approximately 210 lbs. My waist is about 37 inches. My hips and stomach are about 47 inches each. My thighs are about 27 inches each. These are my primary areas of concern.
I pump milk 3 times a day while at work and am able to nurse my son for an hour every day while at work. The week of May 1ST is my 2ND back at work so I am definitely in an adjustment period in my life and am hoping to use the t-tapp program not only to help me become healthier physically, but also to help me balance out emotionally/mentally as it is very stressful at work right now.
I have enjoyed t-tapping prior to this pregnancy and am slowly getting back into the program. I currently own FIt and Fabulous in 15 minutes, Basic Workout +(instructional and workout) and Step Away the Inches. I have other workouts, but am focused on truly starting from the beginning.
Words of encouragement and stories of success with t-tapp and postpartum recovery are appreciated!
