Pregnancy, like marriage, is an essential part of every woman’s life, but pregnancy represents the rebirth of a woman. Although we have progressed in terms of technology, inventions, and advanced medical treatments, one thing that has remained constant is the natural process of motherhood – breastfeeding.
The good news is that many people are becoming more aware of the benefits of breastfeeding and are opting for it over bottle feeding.
Advantages of Breastfeeding:
- It contains all minerals and nutrients
- Improves immunity power
- Brain development elements
- Soothes baby, jaw exercise
- Controls mother’s weight
- Mother and Baby Bonding
- Relives from postpartum stress.
- Avoid chances of breast cancer in women
Lactating women must prepare during pregnancy by getting regular nipple massages and cleansing their nipples after delivery, eating lactating foods and maintaining good cleanliness (cleaning nipples, hands before and after feeding).
- Garlic milk
- Garlic cloves in Curries
- Poppy seeds
- Papaya (raw papaya curry)
- Chikoo (Sapota)
- Bread toast/roasted bread
- Milk and diary products
- Having more water, giving frequent feeds will increase milk supply.
Doctors recommended breastfeeding until the baby is one to two years old if the mother had no health problems. However, when compared to newborns, breastfeeding toddlers is a challenging process since we women encounter many challenges when feeding in public. Although many public locations have feeding rooms/blocks for mothers, we find it uncomfortable to feed a toddler because of their tantrums, carry feeding supplies, and rush burry; we prefer not to go out right! So take care of your and your child’s needs. Make sure you are hassle-free and comfortable to feed your child anywhere.
