Breast is best. This is not only a saying but a fact. Breastmilk is indeed the best milk for babies. No formula milk or any alternative has ever come close to what breastmilk can offer. However, it has been a foregoing struggle for moms especially new ones to keep their golden liquid flowing. The pain, exhaustion, and anxieties make it even harder for Moms to enjoy this precious moment. Instead of joy, it becomes frustrating and traumatizing.
This is not only a problem in the Philippines but also, recognized worldwide. Therefore, majority of the hospitals worldwide support moms in overcoming this struggle through putting experts to master the art of lactation. We now have people who specialize in lactation and it is now a sub-specialty as a pediatrician.
Importance of a well-balanced diet and hydration
It is important for moms to be well-rested, nourished, and hydrated to be able to provide the best quality of breastmilk to a newborn. Since they are still highly dependent to you, you should take precaution on what you eat, drink, and do.
Mothers need to increase food intake for about 20-25%, which is equivalent to additional 400-500 calories daily over their usual intake. This is to replace the energy and other nutrients that they give out during breastfeeding. Food that are rich in Fiber, Protein, Calcium, and Iron can help maintain a healthy body for moms and sustained milk production. Commercially available lactation goods and supplements are also helpful in increasing milk supply.
It is also essential to take Vitamins A, B12, C, and D especially during this tough times and clean distilled drinking water. It is important for moms to be well-hydrated because it highly affects milk production.
Hydration’s role on Breastfeeding
Hydration plays a big role on breastfeeding. According to Dr. Azenith L. Tammang, MD, DPPS Medical Officer from Pasig City Children’s hospital, it is important for moms to drink clean, safe, and pure water to avoid having Enteritis that can lead to Diarrhea. This can cause dehydration which can lead to less milk production and stress. Another reason why clean and safe water is essential for breastfeeding moms is because breastmilk is 88% water. This is also the reason why newborns don’t need water during breastfeeding because breastmilk is sufficient enough. Water is not only for hydration but also for our entire well-being especially our family’s. Now that we’re more vigilant on our food intake and supplements, we should also take a deep dive on our drinking water.
