The development of standardized approaches to promote healthy pre-pregnancy weight, appropriate weight gain during pregnancy, the initiation and maintenance of breastfeeding during infancy, and a return to healthy weight status postpartum can help prevent overweight and obesity throughout the life span. The emphasis is on returning to the previous level of healthy weight, that is, the pre-pregnancy weight. Initiation of breastfeeding and continuing it for the first six months at least plays a pivotal role in attaining pre-pregnancy healthy weight.

The following points are worthy of mention.
Breast-milk contains all essential nutrients required by the infant and protects the infant from many infections. In addition, breast-milk feeding promotes bonding between mother and infant. Breastfeeding helps in retraction of the uterus, an important point of note, which plays a crucial role in attaining previous healthy weight. Breastfeeding causes delayed return of menstruation. This prolongs the birth interval by fertility control. Incidence of cancer is low in mothers who breastfeed. Breastfeeding is also associated with better cognitive development of children and also provides some long-term health benefits.
Pay caution, as HIV may be transmitted from mother to infant through breast milk. Start breastfeeding within an hour after delivery. Breastfeed for a minimum of 6 months. Continue breastfeeding up to 2 years, if possible. Weaning foods rich in nutrients can be fed to infant from sixth month onwards, along with breastfeed. Adequate nutritional diet should be taken both during pregnancy and lactation.
For those who choose to drink alcohol, wait at least 4 hours after drinking alcohol before breastfeeding.
