Excerpt
This diagram shows a woman's body, with an extra layer of fat drawn around it. This is the extra fat that a well-nourished woman builds up during pregnancy. The fat will be used during the first few months of lactation to make breastmilk. A poorly nourished woman builds up a smaller store of fat. Making breastmilk uses about 700 Calories a day. The diagram next to the woman shows that in a well-nourished woman about 200 Calories come from her fat stores, and about 500 Calories must come from the food that she eats during breastfeeding. In addition to energy, breastmilk contains protein, minerals, and vitamins. If a woman eats a variety of foods, and is not hungry, she will normally eat more protein, minerals and vitamins than her body needs. A breastfeeding mother uses these extra nutrients to make breastmilk. If a mother is on a very poor diet, there may not be enough extra nutrients. If she has any stored nutrients, she uses these to make breastmilk. If she has no stores, the nutrients come from her own body tissues, and she becomes malnourished.
