Breastfeeding is a beautiful gift to both the mom and the newborn, but for many women it is far from easy. Before the birth is the time to prepare for breastfeeding and prevent any issues that might ensue.
There are trends in health care. Some are beneficial and some are not. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all babies be give vitamin D drops. My initial reaction is breastmilk is the perfect food and babies don’t need anything else! But let us be honest, we live in a malnourished culture with processed food and poor guts and we want to give our kids the absolute best. So I decided to look closer into giving vitamin D to babies.
Many times we focus all our energy on pregnancy and birth and forget that this is all in preparation for the postpartum season. There are many ways we can prepare for the best postpartum season, even in the last month of pregnancy. Here I talk about 4 physical ways to prepare for the postpartum.
These 6 vitamins are what I recommend every mom be on during the postpartum. I also recommend they be on them during pregnancy and really anytime. They are such a good foundation for health.
