nursing mother must be sure that it has enough food all the elements necessary to the child.Breast milk contains a lot of calcium, which contributes to the rapid growth of the child's bones.If she gets too little calcium in the diet, mammary gland extract calcium from her bones.Previously it was thought that calcium is removed from the mother and teeth, but it probably is not.The mother should drink as much milk as the baby takes, plus a little more for their own use, in any form, which she likes to porridges, soups, puddings, or in the form of cheese.

Her daily diet should include the following (even if she has to limit itself to not gain weight).Milk - at least liters per day, preferably half.It can be a conventional fresh, concentrated, and the removed powder or used in any form. Fruits and vegetables - 6 times a day (it may seem that this is too much, but the juice of two oranges, lettuce, green or yellow vegetables and potato twice and will make just six meals a day).To have enough vitamin C, t

wo vegetable dishes should be eaten raw, and at least twice a day should eat oranges, grapefruit, tomato, a little raw cabbage or berries.For vitamin A needed once eat dark green vegetables and once DY.Potatoes are valuable not only for its calorie content.Fruits and vegetables may be fresh, canned, frozen or dried. Meat, poultry, fish - at least one big portions, preferably two.Especially valuable liver, it should be included in the diet from time to time. Eggs - one a day. Kashi and bread - three times a day, wholemeal grain or fortified (with vitamin C). oil and fortified margarines - due to vitamin A. If the weight does not allow you this, eat more green and yellow vegetables. Vitamin D - by prescription, to make up for the lack of calcium in the diet.

If a nursing mother is gaining weight, she can drink skim milk, to limit the amount of oil to reduce the portion of porridge and bread (but use the products from wheat flour to provide a supply of vitamin C), strictly limit or eliminate such high-calorie foods ascandy, cakes, cookies, muffins, cakes and soft drinks.(Unfortunately, it was high-calorie sweets like those who are inclined to corpulence.) But we can not reduce the consumption of milk, vegetables, fruits, meat and vitamin D.
