    If she is on breastfeeding should have to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, 2 glasses of milk, 2 cups of curd a day (low fat/skim milk), grain-pasta, cereal, whole wheat bread, nuts, soybean, pulses, egg, meat, fish have to include in her diet. drink eight to nine glasses of water. Avoid caffeine, sugar.
    get some from of daily exercise such as walking.
    calcium supplement is needed in lactation so take before ask your physician.

    Has your friend been taking her iron and calcium suppliments regularly during pregnancy?She has to continue that sincerely till she breast feeds her baby.This along with good amount of water(about 10 glasses), a good diet ,as told by our nutritionist and light exercise she should improve.Otherwise consult your doctor. She could be anemic,or hypothyroid.
