Omega-3 benefits have proven to have a significant effect on your overall health, including the health and development of your baby! These fatty acids play a vital role in the growth and development of your baby’s brain, nervous, and visual systems. Since the human body cannot naturally make these nutrients we must make sure we consume them from other sources.
You can find Omega-3s in fatty fish products, nuts and seeds. These fatty acids are considered essential fats since the human body can’t produce them on its own. Babies generate these acids much more slowly than adults so it is important that they get these nutrients through the mom’s milk. That’s why it is essential that every mom consumes the proper amount of Omega-3s to make sure that the baby has the necessary nutrients to mature properly.
