Hi I am wondering if any of you can suggest a food or drinks that is good for lactating mothers? i.e increase milk production, gives good benefits to baby, etc.
Looking forward to hear your suggestions.
You should XP this on the BFing board, it's a busy board and the girls have tons of information over there.
Basically just eating a healthy balanced diet should provide you and your baby with everything. Eating a bowl of oatmeal a day is supposed to increase production.
Oatmeal is supposed to boost milk production.
but the most important thing is 1) eating plenty of healthy food (lots of protein), and 2) drink A TON of water, and 3) continue taking your PNV
I remember the first couple of months after DS was born, I was hungry all.day.long. I was eating every 2 hours during the day and I was starving when the 2 hours was up! I had a lot of protein foods - trail mixes, nuts, hummus, hard-boiled eggs, cheese, yogurt. And I drank water nonstop.
