Benefits to Breast Milk

Aside from the health advantages, it can be extremely less expensive than having to buy formula all the time. Breastfeeding can also be favorable to mommy too. Studies show that mothers who breastfeed have a higher chance of postpartum weight loss. They also have a less chance of getting osteoporosis, breast cancer, and other diseases.

With all of these awesome advantages, no wonder it's a relief when your milk comes in after delivering your little one! For nine months, it is easy to worry about whether or not you will be able to breastfeed your newborn. The question is, how do you boost your breast milk supply? Below are some valuable tips on how to increase your supply.

  • Nurse as often as possible.
  • Switch off between breasts.
  • Make your nipple the “main nipple”. Use pacifiers, bottles, and nipple shields less often.
  • Talk with a lactation consultant. Take advantage of the one available to you at the hospital after you deliver.
  • Be sure to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. Also try out foods that are known to boost milk supply such as oatmeal, lactation cookies, salmon, garlic, and apricots to name just a few.
