Right nutrition for a breastfeeding mom

Motherhood is perhaps one of the best stages for a woman and unique for each one. It is an amazing phase in a woman’s life wherein she dedicates her entire time and energy to make sure that her baby is being taken care of well. Every moment that a mother spends around her baby, it gives her a feeling of satisfaction and unbound happiness. With a newborn around, a mother’s maximum time goes in running from pillar to post and she’s hardly got any time to spare for herself. Managing her home and the baby at the same time becomes a herculean task for a new mum but she does it with par excellence. After doing all of this, as a mum one needs to take some time for one self as well even if her calendar is chock-a-block, it is important to take care of your own self even to make sure that the baby is healthy and happy. I have found this to be one of the key hurdles for young moms and have consistently believed in taking good care of one’s own health. Here are a few tips I believe would go a long way.

hi mamta, I feel u don't need anything else to increase milk flow, these two are enough. Have a healthy diet, less spicy & stay hydrated. Drink lots of water (as much u need) as water also goes in milk formation. That's why we mothers feel thirsty.

Soak a bowl of sabudana in water overnight. Strain the water from sabudana & boil it with milk (don't over dry it). Add lil sugar for taste to it & drink a glass or two of sabudana milk everyday. It's kinda "Ram baan" for lactating mothers, good source of energy & helps in formation of breast milk. This drink helped me throughout the first six months of only breastfeeding time of my baby & I still drink it. Happy breastfeeding

Hi Ramya,Hope you are doing good. Yes you can consume lean meats like chicken and fish. Restrict the consumption of mutton to once in 15days. For breakfast you can consume eggs which can be cooked in your own style. You can prepare chicken salad/soup/grilled chicken,chicken stir fry/grilled fish/baked fish/fish salad/egg salad/egg soup/chicken,egg,fish gravy (in low oil,and you can use onion,tomato as the base and you can use coconut milk too. Chicken and eggs can be added to frankies/wraps/sandwiches/pulav/biryani(you can use brown rice in place of white rice and add loads of veggies to enhance the nutrition value). Hope this helps :)

Hi Moni ka, Thank you for the compliment. In order to make the bones strong you need calcium and for calcium to get absorbed you need vitamin D. So you need enough Vitamin D which you would get from the sunlight and calcium from calcium rich foods like Milk,White beans,black eyes beans,almonds,sesame seeds,paneer,greek yoghurt or plain curd,buttermilk,Broccoli and Spinach. So keeping in mind that you are a vegetarian all these veg foods are good sources of calcium. You do not necessarily need nveg to have stronger bones :)

Hi Raji,Good to hear from you. You can mix nuts like almonds and pistachios and make a powder of the same. You can add this powder in a glass of milk and consume everyday. Ideally you should have either almonds or walnuts but occasionally you can mix small quantities of nuts together and have a handful of it. Everyday you can have a handful of nuts make sure you divide it equally... have some as your mid-morning snack,some for evening. Let me know if you have any other queries :)
