Diet tips for breastfeeding mothers

As a young mother and you're breastfeeding? Here are ways to tweak your diet plan for weight loss or maintain your health.

Slightly increase the calories. Aims for an additional 300-500 calories per day.

You Feed from H20. To keep from drought, which can lead to a decrease in production of milk, drink two extra quart of water per day.

Restrict the use of caffeine and alcohol, as this is very influential on the baby.

Notice how consume vitamins.

1. Vitamin C: Because of the many activities that you do in caring for the baby, including breastfeeding your baby, you need to get 120 mg (normal vs 85 mg) per day.
Source of vitamin C is good:: red peppers, oranges, broccoli, strawberries, kiwi, tomato soup, cantaloupe.

2. Vitamin A: You lost a lot of vitamin A because it is also breastfeeding, so it requires 1300 micrograms per day (vs. the usual 700 micrograms).

Some examples of both the Vitamin A are: spinach, carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato, and kale.

3. Omega-3s. Your baby's brain needs DHA, the omega-3 fatty acid found in fish and fish oil supplements, to develop properly. Since your milk is your baby’s only source of nutrients (at least during the first few months), you’ll want to get at least 200 mg per day.
