Forget the diet

Another thing to keep in mind, mothers need not fear getting fat during lactation. because fat is dumped during pregnancy will be used for the formation of breast milk. in other words a breastfeeding mother, his weight will be more quickly returned to the original weight of the mothers did not breastfeed. so focus your attention on the needs of your baby breast milk, especially during the first six months.
if the mother a little concerned with body shape now, then the mother can only reduce foods high in carbohydrates and sweet, like rice, bread, cakes, candied fruits, candies, chocolates, drinks and sweet biscuits. full cream milk skim milk can be substituted by a lower fat content. usually fried foods can be cooked in other ways, such as steamed, boiled, or burned. other than that avoid fat meat, as well as vegetables and fruits high in calories, such as avocado, soursop, maize and tubers.
but so, it does not mean the mother may reduce the frequency of eating or not eating on time should be for reasons too busy. you can take ten minutes on the sidelines during your busy to sit down to eat bread and eggs, a glass of milk and a few pieces of papaya, for example, this is all enough to make a contribution to nutrient substances the body needs.
so you should not always think about weight loss. could disrupt production in addition to breast milk, mothers still need extra calories to do activities during your child is still young, treat, and ask him to play. do not be a happy moment when it just missed.

Therefore, pregnant or lactating women need more calories than non-pregnant women. if the circumstances do not pregnant a mature female requires approximately as much as 2200 calories kcal per day, then a mother during pregnancy requires approximately as much as 2500 calories kcal per day. This requirement will increase again when the mother breast-feeding. he must add another approximately another 750 kcal per day of normal requirements, so be approximately 2900 kcal. when consumption of calories (which can be obtained from carbohydrates and fat) is low, it will be a lot of protein for use as energy is wasted. whereas, this substance is actually a substance-forming substance that is necessary for growth. that's why, the mother must comply with the good will of calories her body needs

2. Protein
breast milk contains protein, approximately 1.2 g/100ml. therefore, nursing mothers need to consume approximately 64 grams of protein per day, which can be obtained from fish and eggs. Other substances are also very beneficial for babies is taurine, karnetin and nucleotides. All three played an important role in the work of the nervous system, metabolism and immunology (the immune), the little guy. when a mother breast-feeding always consume protein, both animal and vegetable oils in sufficient quantities, this substance is automatically third is enough to meet the needs of the body.

3. Fat
Also important is consumed while breast-feeding mothers are essential fatty acids. This substance is very important, among others in the process of growth or the formation of a baby's brain. Essential fatty acids in the form of omega 3 (in the body will become DHA), can be obtained by consuming various kinds of sea fish, like mackerel, anchovies, and green vegetables. whereas omega-6 can be obtained from oils derived from seeds of grains, including soybean oil and corn oil.

4. Vitamins and minerals
considering the production of breast milk also need iron and calcium, so it is recommended that mothers consume as much as 28 mg of iron per day, and approximately 900 mg of calcium per day. iron, which among other things required in the blood supply, can be obtained by eating liver, beef and seafood. calcium, which is useful for the formation of teeth and bones, could be obtained from
milk and processed products, and nuts.
when breast-feeding mother would need a share of vitamins and minerals. several types of vitamins are necessary as class B1, B2, B3, B12 and vitamin C. levels of these vitamins in the body of consumption depends heavily everyday. at least, nursing mothers need an additional approximately 1.2 mg vitamin B1, B2 of about 1.4 mg, about 12.4 mg B3, and B12 of about 2.3 mg. Vitamin C is needed as much as 85 mg per day. many vitamins can be by consuming a variety of colorful vegetables and fruits. in addition it contains vitamins that are needed by breastfeeding mothers, fruits can help refresh the body.

Providing optimal breast milk exclusively

according to the WHO exclusive breast milk is the provision of breast milk alone (without the addition of other fluids, such as formula milk, orange juice, honey, tea, water, or other foods such as bananas, porridge, biscuits etc.), until the babies aged 4-6 months. even, with a good lactation management, expressed breast milk production enough

as the sole food for the growth of normal infants up to age 6 months. whereas for infants with allergies are encouraged to be given breast milk exclusively until 9 months to prevent the occurrence of allergic reactions that are too early. because so far, no babies are allergic to milk his mother, except if the mother consumes food or beverages that contain substances that are allergens. if the mother stopped the consumption of the substance an allergen, an allergen reaction in babies will heal by itself.

breast milk should be given to infants up to age 6 months due under the age of the infant not yet able to digest foods other than breast milk. in addition to nutrients, breast milk also contains digestive enzymes that have not been able to be produced by a newborn. so although the function of digestive organs are not perfect, the digestive enzymes in breast milk will help the baby digest the substances contained substances in milk that smoked. so the remainder of metabolism (the burning of substances in the body into energy, the new cells, and others) that will be released through the kidneys was only slightly, so that the kidneys work becomes easier.

research that monitors the growth of infants who received breast milk exclusively using growth parameters, namely body weight according to age and body weight by height showed that the growth of infants with birth weight enough to get breast milk exclusively was in accordance with the standards according to WHO growth until 6 months.

from various studies, showed that at age 3-4 months, infants who received breast milk exclusively a bit more weight than formula-fed infants. after that, formula-fed babies will be heavier, but the length and equal to circle his head who got breast milk. this means that babies who received formula milk for food, excessive.

although the energy intake of protein per kg body weight babies who received breast milk exclusively lower compared with formula-fed infants, the ratio of weight gain per 100 calories higher. this means that energy use in infants who received breast milk exclusively is more efficient than formula-fed infants. in connection with this, WHO is now trying to develop new growth curves that are based on growth in infants who received breast milk exclusively.

Other studies also show that babies who received breast milk exclusively, morbidity (disease rate) and much lower mortality rate than babies who received breast milk mixed with formula, especially when compared with that do not get breast milk . infants are also rarely sick. with a rare illness, growth and development of infants who received breast milk would be better.
