I've been wanting to work out, and I've thought about rejoining Curves or possibly signing up for Zumba. That's always looked fun to me and there is a Zumba dance group in town. Before I do and pay the money and commit to anything harder than just speed walking, I have some questions. Will a hard work out a few days a week affect my milk supply? What kind of work out bra should I wear? Are there any specific types I should avoid? I'm very out of shape and desperately want to get back into shape and lose my baby weight.

I was zumbaing Daily and it didn't affect my milk supply. I wear a sports bra, not as tight as I would if I wasn't bfing. Just so it is controling the boobies but not suffocating if that makes sense.

Also because it is high speed and I sweat a good bit while doing it, if I can't shower before next feeding I at least use a wipe and "Clean up" a little before I feed Deanna.
