Nutrition Q & A

How Much Fluid Should You Drink When Breastfeeding?

During breastfeeding you need about 13 cups of fluids daily. Drink more if you're thirsty. Keep water, low-fat or fat-free milk or juice handy to sip as you nurse. Or, make it a habit to drink a glass of water or milk after each time you nurse your baby. Milk and juice supply other nutrients you need such as calcium from milk and vitamin C from most fruit juices.
