Becoming a mother is one of the most challenging and wonderful experiences in most women’s lives. It pumps joy and makes you feel elated even after you’ve gone through a lot of physical exhaustion and mood swings. The very first act after becoming a new mother is to breastfeed the newborn. While the act of breastfeeding is quite natural, it has been seen that many women have a lot of queries about it. We suggest you hold on to that thought, and relax, as we are listening. Here are some breastfeeding tips for new mothers. We hope this will resolve your worries to some extent.

Engross a Nutritious and Healthy Lifestyle 

Believe it or not, whatever you put inside your belly is directly proportional to the nutrients entering your baby’s body. A healthy routine is imperative for breastfeeding, as it the same holds true for pregnancy. We suggest the following:

  • Eat Nutritious Diet – Build a chart and stick to it. A diet filled with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, cereals, yogurt, cheese, and other natural proteins & fibers will bring energy and enhance calories needed to keep up the milk supply.

  • Keep Yourself Hydrated – Drink plenty of fluids, water, fruit, vegetable juices, milk which helps you stay hydrated.

  • Lower the Caffeine Count – Low to moderate amount of tea or coffee is harmless, but if you scale up the amount it will interfere with your baby’s sleep.

  • Say No to Alcohol While Breastfeeding– Drinking during breastfeeding is risky, try avoiding it. If you have taken an alcoholic drink, do avoid breastfeeding for approximately two hours.

  • Practice Good Hygiene – Cleaning your breasts and taking a shower every day is recommended. Use a bar of moisturizing soap and rinse properly.

  • Wear a freshly washed nursing bra every day. Also, do change the breast pads that are worn to soak up the leakage of breast milk. A wet or unclean bra will cause the breasts’ skin to breakdown, which is a perfect place for the bacteria generation.

In case of painful breasts, sore nipples, plugged milk ducts or any other issue, always prefer visiting a doctor.

Physical & Emotional Well Being
