Throughout pregnancy, your body was completely devoted to your baby. It is very normal to feel depleted after the birth, and looking after yourself now isn’t self-indulgent, it’s necessary.
Good nutrition gives you your energy back. The downsides of living with a newborn are well documented: lack of sleep, anxiety and even depression. Add in fluctuating hormone levels and it’s no wonder so many women struggle to cope in those early days. Eating the right foods can help to enhance your mood, balance your hormones and get you feeling more like your old self. A practical and individual postnatal nutrition plan will help you to safely return to your pre-pregnancy weight while replenishing your reserves so you can feel your best again.
Striking the right nutritional balance when you are breastfeeding is really important for both you and your baby. Although your milk supply may not be affected by what you eat, your body will always put your baby first. Your body will take the nutrients it needs for your baby’s milk from its own stores – this can affect your energy levels, general health and wellbeing if you are not getting the nutrients you need from your diet. This does not mean that you should stop eating certain foods (we all love cake!), it simply means that you should try to incorporate healthy choices wherever possible.
These breastfeeding superfoods will help your energy levels and prevent you from having blood sugar lows – which can make parenting that much harder. If you are finding it hard to cook meals, breastfeeding superfoods are nutritional powerhouses that offer quick alternatives.
