Diet for nusing mothers

Diet for nusing mothers
The diet for breastfeeding mothers should simply be a continuation of the healthy dietary choices made during pregnancy. The lactating mother's diet should be a well-balanced meal providing all the necessary nutrients rather than one which merely provides more energy due to the addition of lots of 'ghee'.

The diet for breastfeeding mom’s must include plenty of vegetables, green leaves and fruits. This along with whole grains and legumes and foods high in calcium to provide all the different nutrients required in a lactating mother’s diet.

Re: Diet for nusing mothers
It is often recommended when you are pregnant that you eat about
300 to 500 calories more than you would with your normal diet.
The same is true during breastfeeding. For most breastfeeding women that means 2,000-2,200 calories per day, but can range anywhere from 1,800-2,700 calories depending on your height and size. This recommendation is based on the amount of breast milk
that is consumed by your baby.

Re: Diet for nusing mothers
Mothers gain weight during pregnancy.it is natural to shed that baby fat during your lactation period. As one of the benefit of lactation is that it helps in shedding extra kgs. It is fine if you are shedding weight during lactation, but try to maintain your Nutritional level optimum till your baby do not turn six months old. Once you start weaning food for him, you can make changes in your diet.

There are following foods which help in improving milk secretion in nursing mothers:
Fenugreek seeds - 1-2 tsp / day
fenugreek leaves - 75 gm
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp / d
Poppy seeds- 1 tsp
betalnut leaf
Shatawari - 1 tbsp with milk
