Four (4) Nutrition Tips for a Healthy Breastfeeding Life
There's no doubt that mothers who decide to breastfeed intend to provide the ideal nutrition for their baby. That's Great! But, think twice, mommy! First, your baby and second, you. It's something that needs to be thought over because your body is going to work hard to produce milk for your baby.
It's important that you also provide yourself with nourishing ways, it's more like a lifestyle.
So, for a healthy breastfeeding life, here are surefire ways...
- Eat a Well-Balanced Diet
A balanced diet is a nutritious diet. So, load up on Good Fats, high amounts of Protein. Fiber and Carbohydrates. The good nutrition you can get from eating a well-balanced diet will boost your breastmilk and health too!
- Extra Calories!
If you're breastfeeding, consume calories, and more calories! Don't count your calories because you will be needing extra 500 - 700 calories a day while breastfeeding.
Also, more calories mean more energy!
- Drink Water and Stay Hydrated
Whenever you breastfeed do you feel thirsty? If yes, then that means the Oxytocin is working on your body to produce milk and is responsible for making you thirsty.
Make sure that you stay hydrated too. Breastmilk is about 90% water, so drink water.
- Continue your Prenatal Vitamins
Yes, that's right, Prenatal. It's recommendable that you continue taking your prenatal vitamins throughout breastfeeding or at least 6 months postpartum to restore nutrition for your baby.
In these ways, you can make a big difference in giving your babies the nutrients that will promote their health and development, as well as yours!
