INSTRUCTIONS FOR LACTATING MOTHERS

  • Follow the healthy diet you followed during pregnancy.
  • Take a fluid before you feed the baby, it will help in milk flow  
  • Babies can be fussy and can have excess gas but not because you had broccoli for dinner last night. Fads are not facts. Check with your pediatrician.  
  • Fussy periods are normal during the first three months of life. It is unlikely that the baby is reacting to a food you have eaten.
  • If you believe your baby is reacting to something in your diet, eliminate that food for two or three weeks, then try it again.
  • Don't rush out and start dieting for the first three months. Start with a regular 30 minutes exercise, per day. Always consult your doctor before starting exercise. 
  • Breast-feeding itself will help weight loss during the 12 months after giving birth.
