Our heartiest congratulations on the new arrival. You need to avoid heavy work, bending forward, squatting , sitting on floor and picking up weights for 6 weeks. Avoid spicy, fried and stale food and food cooked outside. Visit your doctor for a checkup , to make sure that healing is complete and for prescription of supplements. You need to both relax and take care of diet to help in lactation. Few suggestions are take a balanced diet of cereals (esp dalia, bajra), green leafy vegetables (esp methi, mustard leaves), dals ,legumes (masoor. black channa, soybean), fruits, milk products, eggs , vegetables and leafy greens, eggs and meat.
