Nursing: Eat a Varied Diet
During the nursing period, you can basically keep to your normal diet and eat whatever you like.
It is not a time for dieting or slimming, as you now need all your body's reserves.
The best thing for you and your baby is to regain your normal weight gradually.
It is essential to eat regularly, otherwise you will not produce enough milk and your baby may be weaned too early.
Here are a few tips for healthy eating during the nursing period:
What to watch out for:
Here again, a diet of fast food and cola is not the best thing for you or your baby. To avoid wind for both your sakes, you should eat cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli rather more sparingly. In particular, exotic dishes and strong spices should not be eaten in excess.
Our Tip: A good way of avoiding wind in both you and your baby is to take cumin and fennel. You'll find that fennel tea with a spoonful of honey not only tastes good, but is an effective remedy for flatulence. As for your baby, you should only give your baby unsweetened tea, and never give your baby honey.
