Lactation meals

Lactation meals are important for breastfeeding mothers. Choose lactation-friendly foods to eat to increase breast milk production and reduce certain medical conditions in your golden years. Plus, breastfeeding not only promotes healthier growth for your child but also helps you with postpartum weight loss. However, keeping yourself nourished might be challenging as you juggle between postpartum recovery, housework and child care. Therefore, it is understandable if you might have overlooked the importance of practising a balanced diet or having a lactation diet chart.

Breast milk

Breast milk is infamous for containing various nutrients and health benefits.

Producing breast milk is a demanding task for your body, you will need to consume an extra 500 calories in order to fulfill this demand. By having a professional to plan a meal plan with food for breast milk production, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re consuming sufficient nutrients to support both you and your baby’s needs. On a side note, nuts and seeds make for a good diet to boost lactation because they are an excellent non-dairy source of calcium. Keep in mind that breastfeeding mums should have 1,000 mg of calcium daily, and implementing nuts and seeds as part of your postpartum meal plan would certainly do wonders to boost breast milk supply!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What increases milk supply?

The short answer: everything on our menu! At ReLacto, we only use the best milk booster food in our lactation meal plan, which includes ginger, garlic, fennel, fenugreek, moringa oleifera, and green papaya. Foods containing some or all of these ingredients in any combination or portion may help boost your breast milk production.

2. What foods are bad for lactation?

Caffeine and alcohol should be on your list of lactation foods and drinks to avoid, as they have a dehydrating effect that can affect your breast milk production. Additionally, caffeine and alcohol will pass through the bloodstream and into your breast milk, which is then passed on to your baby when you breastfeed. Mercury-rich foods such as shark fin, albacore tuna, and king mackerel should also be avoided as much as possible. Remember to always consult with your healthcare professional first before making any changes to your diet. As you avoid these foods, take note of the foods to eat to increase breast milk production, and maintain a well-balanced diet.

3. How can I quickly increase my breast milk production?

Bodily functions cannot be adjusted overnight, so what you do today may only show results in a few days at the quickest. That said, try to drink more fluids and cut down on dehydrating substances like caffeine, which can be found in coffee, chocolates, and carbonated drinks. Another effective way that may help boost your breast milk production is to incorporate lactogenic ingredients (a.k.a. foods that help produce breast milk) into your diet, like those found in our lactation meals.

4. Are lactation beverages helpful?

Yes, taking in as many fluids as possible can help fuel your breast milk production and prevent dehydration, which can be harmful to breastfeeding mothers. Lactation beverages even have the added benefit of containing lactogenic ingredients that can help maintain and boost breast milk supply, as well as nutrients you need to support your baby's development.
