    Hello, a breast feeding mother "eats for two" so eating healthy is important for quality milk production.however, eating excessively and growing big is an individual thing and not necessarily related to the breastfeeding. there are loads of women out there who are exclusively breastfeeding and are not fat. I hope this answers your question.
