Veg Recipes for Enhancing Breast Milk Production, Indian Recipes
What a lovely journey is motherhood! From the time you learn you are pregnant to finally holding your little bundle of joy in your arms, the joys and ups and downs and worries all make it a memorable time. Of course, the postpartum period is a difficult time – though you are out of your pregnant state, your body is still sore from the whole process of pregnancy and delivery. Additionally, the newborn has to be nursed and cared for. You are just about getting used to BREAST FEEDING.
Adequate nutrition is essential all along, and cannot be compromised at any time. You know that the first milk, called colostrum, is the building block of immunity for your baby. And, thereafter breast milk is a source of nutrients and antibodies for your little one.
The quality and quantity of breast milk depends very much on the mother’s nutritional backup made during the 9 months of pregnancy and what she eats while breast feeding. While water holds first place in being added to a lactation diet, other foods can also be looked upon. There is no magic potion in any food, but some foods can definitely help in enhancing breast milk production. These are called galactogogues. Though each of these food may not have enough evidence, but they have been passed on from generations and have been found useful by most new moms.
