Hi dear mummies,
I am a mummy who is breastfeeding my baby. Though supplementing my gal with FM since she is 6.5 mths old, I am still concern of the quality of expressed milk I am producing for her.
Does any one of you take any additional supplements? Like calcium & iron pills for ourself since we are losing calcium in the milk we are producing. Taking fish oil(safe for babies;prescribed by drs or if not, what brand are you taking) so that it will be in our ebm and in turn gets to the system of our babies when she take it. Multivitamins that was taken during pregnancy period to gives us the needed nutrients and vitamins that we need since it will be deficient from our body after utilising our body store's of them for producing ebm for our precious little one?
Till today, I'm still taking the supplements that was prescribed by my gynae during my pregnancy such as obimin, fish oil & calcium tabs.
Another concern which many mummies may have : Can we do chemicals on our hair such as rebonding and dying/highlighing our hair. We also need to look good after giving birth to our baby right? viola.. Can we? Any advise or advise from your gynae or dr that you can share with us, for the benefit or all great breastfeeding mummies?
I colored my hair when my baby turned 2 mths old. Gynae told me no issue with dat. I'm thinking of rebonding my hair but had to delay till latr cos I'm having hair loss after birth so dont want to exaggerate further by stressing my hair.
Can we/our babies eat the following food :
1) Durian - Yes
2) tea/coffee & cafeinated food - Small amount/ portion but not frequent, once in a blue moon.
3) alcoholic drinks - Strictly NO
4) Fruits - any restrictions or specific fruits that we can give our babies at different stages (3-6 mths, 6-8 mths and/or 8 mths owards) - I take all kind of fruits as I'm a fruit lover. Usually I took apples, oranges,pears quite often.
All sharings and advices are greatly appreciated tons!
Hope it helps
