Good Vitamins For Nursing Mothers?
what vitamins are good for breastfeeding mothers so that the baby can be fat and healthy ??
Hello Mrs. Wiwin! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
When breastfeeding, you need more food than before pregnancy. Mothers should enrich foods that are high in protein, such as eggs, fish or chicken. Eat fish 2-3 times a week. Supplements or vitamins that you can take in addition to supplements or vitamins that you consume when pregnant, especially iron and folic acid. Both are essential for a baby's development. You also need to pay attention to the number of drinks you drink. Make sure you drink enough water. As much as possible, avoid drinking drinks that contain caffeine, such as coffee, tea and soda. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Do not take drugs or herbs without consulting your doctor.
A healthy baby is every mother's goal. Babies don't have to be fat to be healthy. Excess weight is not good for babies. Babies need to be breastfed at least every 2-3 hours. Mothers can breastfeed more often if the baby seems hungry. For each breastfeeding, usually the newborn will nurse for 10-15 minutes on each mother's breast or longer. Make sure your baby's development is monitored every month by a doctor or midwife. Mothers will usually be given a notebook containing curves to map the child's weight and height. Make sure your child's growth follows the curve. If abnormal growth begins, you should see a pediatrician. So that you can give full attention to your baby, use a good contraceptive to delay the next pregnancy. Discuss contraceptive options with your doctor or nearest midwife.
