Nursing mothers should be educated on proper diet practices while being warned about unscientific approaches to diet restriction. Breast-feeding is a personal decision a mother needs to make carefully, taking full into account the benefits and burdens it will bring to both mother and baby. Breast-feeding offers many benefits. The nipples also become larger and more erect as they prepare for milk production. Mothers who breast-feed typically have an easier time losing weight after pregnancy. Certain conditions or diseases may also prevent a woman from breast-feeding. Breast cancer, certain breast infections, or another type of cancer may prevent a woman from breast-feeding her baby. Women who are HIV positive, have AIDS, have heart disease, are malnutritioned, or have untreated tuberculosis may be recommended not to breast-feed.
