The purpose of this paper was to review the impact of breastfeeding on weights of both mothers and infants. The present review focuses on two points: the effect of breastfeeding on the mother’s weight; the effect of breastfeeding on the baby’s weight. With the development of breast milk research methods and technology, the understanding of breastfeeding will be further deepened, while underlying mechanisms, metabolic pathways, and determinants should be further studied in the future.
