Nutrients You Need As a Breastfeeding Mother

Nutrients You Need As a Breastfeeding Mother

You’re feeding everyone else, who’s feeding you?

Time to consider what you’re putting into that body of yours. It’s nourishing you as well as that precious little person too...

We're keeping it short and to the point today. Let's get into it, shall we?

Nutrients You Need As a Breastfeeding Mother

Fluid

Bub is drinking so much fluid from you, so you need (much) more than usual to keep up with demand.  You’ve never felt thirsty like ‘breastfeeding thirsty’. 💧

Calcium

Calcium is a major ingredient in breastmilk. Snag some for yourself while bub takes yours. 

Go for dairy products- milk, cheese, yoghurts or calcium-fortifed soy milk. 🥛

Iodine

It helps your baby to develop their brain and central nervous systems. 🧠

Go for fresh, cooked fish and seafood, bread with added iodine, eggs and dairy.

Vitamin B12 and Iron

As much as you need it, so does bub. So it looks like you’re eating for two. 👌🏼

Go for meat, chicken, fish, seafood, eggs and dairy. Also nuts and seeds, legumes and leafy greens.

Vitamin D

Getting some sunshine can be the best dose of Vitamin D (and may even help you forget about the sleepless nights). 🌞

Try sun-baking your mushrooms 🍄 for an added boost (yes, really!)

And there you have it! Six nutrients you need as a mum that's breastfeeding. And for anyone who needs to hear it: You're doing great.
