I love being a breastfeeding mom. It blows my mind that my body is able to provide all the nutrition to my baby that he needs. But I know that I need to pay attention to my own nutrition as a breastfeeding mom to give my baby what is best for him. Because of that I make sure to pay attention to a few key things:
-Take a prenatal vitamin. This is a great way to make sure you (and your baby) gets all the vitamins you need. And there’s only one prenatal vitamin I take – Nature Made. I’ve been taking Nature Made prenatals since I got pregnant with Maddie Grace in July of 2013 and haven’t stopped since I’ve been pregnant or breastfeeding this whole time. And I’ve tried every single prenatal vitamin that exists – and there is only one that doesn’t cause me to immediately puke, and that is Nature Made.
-Drink lots of water. It’s a good thing in general to stay hydrated but it’s extra important for breastfeeding moms. This will help keep your supply up so that your baby gets plenty of milk
-Keep a wholesome diet. Eat plenty of protein, whole grains, fruits, and veggies. This is hard for me so I make protein, fruits and veggie smoothies at least once a day. My favorite combines all three and tastes like birthday cake. Not kidding.
All it is is matcha powder, vanilla protein powder, frozen strawberries, and spinach!
I buy my Nature Made vitamins at Walmart, because there is always a great selection and the best prices. There’s a reason why Nature Made is the #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements* to help support nutritional gaps. It is also the #1 Pharmacist recommended supplement brand in 9 categories.** Nature made has an awesome Daily Boost program where you can find inspiration and information to further your health goals and see what other Nature Made fans do to stay healthy.
