Pre-pregnancy obesity can lead to delay in lactation

DiabetesIn a study published in the November issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, pre-pregnancy obesity and gestational diabetes mellitus (diabetis which developed during pregnancy) can lead to a delay in lactation, which can lead to women supplementing more frequently with formula or even abandoning breastfeeding.
