Hydration while breastfeeding

Yasmin encourages you to trust your ‘thirst’ sensation to be the guide of how much water you need to support lactation

And it’s true that the mother’s milk is actually made of the fluids of the body. Right. So what is being prepared with it also needs to be replenished as well.

So yes, mothers who are breastfeeding do see a need for having more water during the daytime, basically, it’s all about hydrating themselves, and just meeting the thirst is good enough for a mother to know that there is an intuitive process of the body that guides her towards what she needs to replenish herself with without being very measured about how much water she must take in a day.
