Diet for Breast Feeding Mother's 

Font : A-A+

Diet for Breast Feeding Mother's

Nursing affects a woman's entire lifestyle. A nursing mother with baby-in-tow should eat a balanced diet with plenty of calcium. This means eating fruits and vegetables, whole-grain cereals and bread, eggs, meats or beans, milk and dairy foods like cheese. The mother needs to get enough calories-about 500 more per day than usual-and she need to drink plenty of fluids. A balanced diet that includes 5 servings of milk or dairy products each day will give you enough Calcium.

Certain food products are best avoided as these can appear in the milk. Before taking any tablets clarify with your doctor. Smoking should be avoided. Smoking during breastfeeding is harmful for the baby and also decreases the milk secretion.
