Breastfeeding mothers are sometimes concerned that exercise may affect their breast milk and possibly the growth of their baby.

British researchers studying a few published studies say it does not appear that a mother's workout will have an impact on her infant's growth.

Experts emphasize that getting a doctor's approval before beginning an exercise routine is strongly advised.

Their analysis is published in the July issue of Pediatrics.
