    Q: Can I still breastfeed even if I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant?

    A: Yes.  The very term, gestational diabetes, means the sickness is only present during the pregnancy.  There is no direct correlation between gestational diabetes and breastfeeding.  In fact if a mom is breastfeeding, she also protects herself longer from different life threatening illnesses, diabetes included.
