6 Surprising Facts About Breastfeeding

Don’t eat like a dietitian: You don’t need to eat like a dietitian when your baby depends on your breast milk only. You must add 500 calories to your daily meal in order to produce a good quality and quantity of milk. You need to make those calories count for the sake of your baby. You can eat multigrain, vegetables, fruits, and foods that contain a lot of calcium and vitamins. Breast milk is always rich in calcium, and if you don’t consume calcium, then your body will use your own calcium. That will be harmful to your health and you will face a calcium deficiency.
