If my midwife’s advice is recommended to take neurobion forte tablets, is it safe for breastfeeding mothers? And other suggestions for drinking almond milk , please inform me so that my BB increases, and what is the doctor’s suggestion that my body can absorb food well, thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. To find out the ideal weight, actually it would be the same whether in pregnant women or not, namely by measuring the BMI or Body Mass Index. In Indonesian, this is the body mass index, the normal ratio between body weight and height. You can try to measure by clicking the following link to the BMI calculator. For convenience, we have calculated for you and you are actually still in the ideal range.
Against this ideal range, you actually just need to maintain it, not increase or decrease food activity and intake, and adequate rest. As for the medicine you mentioned, it is a vitamin supplement that is not required to be consumed if you do not experience vitamin deficiencies, so you have the right to choose whether to take it or not. But in terms of health, its safety has never been clinically tested. So it can be safe or not. To be safer it is better to fulfill the vitamins obtained from daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, but if you still want to consume them, then that is your right.
What is clear, when you breastfeed, your energy will be more drained, so you have to eat more often and more nutritious. For the current weight, may be maintained, and limit other physical activity so that you are not too tired. So, hopefully answering your question.
