Diet after childbirth - follow and you will sleep well
Nursing mother's diet - postpartum diet.
Perhaps when you were pregnant, you were on a strict diet and ate like a baby (cooked meat, veggie, boiled apple). However, more likely, that you ate whatever, including the kebab,chipsami,chocolate, fried chickens, fries. You sipped soda and you could hardly control even a sip of beer.
Get your fill, woman! Because after giving birth, you have to stop and stop it sharply!
The main problem with sleepless nights and troublesome evenings is infantile colic.
The reasons for its formation are unknown. However, the doctor, the midwife recommends that you take measures to prevent the formation of annoying bubbles in the baby's abdomen and if the mother is breastfeeding she must go on a milk-free diet.
If the mother is feeding formula milk, she does not have to go to the diet. In addition, it has a wider range of possibilities, because there are already milks on the market that prevent colic. Do they work?? Are mm-fed babies less likely to suffer from colic?, stomach pain, gas and sleep almost all night in the first months of life?
From birth my friend's son was mm and it looked like this, that she had to wake him up at night for food, because his eyes were thinner. He was falling asleep himself, he slept most of the time, and when he woke up he was very cheerful. He really rarely cried.
It is assumed in advance, that mother's milk contains everything that has reached the digestive system of the nursing mother. Just like pregnant, With this difference, that the placenta acted as a filter during pregnancy. There are no more filters in milk production. Therefore, in the event of a rash in the child, diarrhea, stomach aches, elimination diets are recommended.
You cannot drink milk and eat milk products.
You can not eat fried and spicy foods.
You can't eat chocolate.
You cannot eat fatty foods that are difficult to digest: mushrooms, Goulash, pizza, kebab other.
You cannot eat cruciferous vegetables.
You can't eat beans, peas, lentils.
Cooked jars should be avoided (e.g. spaghetti sauce), donut.
Additives such as monosodium glutamate should be avoided at all costs, flavor enhancers.
Avoid raw vegetables and fruits - apple only boiled or baked in the oven.
Avoid cakes such as cheesecake, 3bit, poppy seed cake.
My child was extremely sensitive to the products in my diet.
Even Russian dumplings were deadly - the whole night was sleepless. Eating a piece of the birthday cake did the trick, that for the next 24 hours my baby cried in my sore hands.
Salted sticks also turned out to be "poisonous".
Biscuits, I had to avoid the biscuits with a wide berth. I didn't eat chocolate until the end of breastfeeding (14mc!).
Pork chop, pork neck, ham (in boiled form, stewed) also had to disappear from my menu.
My friend followed the diet very closely from the very beginning 9 bw pregnant. She ate meals similar to those for babies while expanding her diet. She bought a steamer and threw the pans away. She forgot to bake cakes until 4 months after giving birth.
She did not eat sweets, salty snacks and fast food. She only drank herbal teas and water.
She steamed everything, and potatoes replaced with groats (but attention to us, barley groats caused flatulence in the child. I could only eat millet.)
Maybe you won't believe it, but her baby only woke up twice in the night (mine every 2 hours or more often around the clock). She kicked her tits and continued to sleep, no problems with her tummy, healthy poop.
Po 4 months she began to introduce new products to her diet, including dairy. The baby reacted correctly and they had no excesses. Two happened, three bloopers, because it is known that it will not always be so beautiful.
Unfortunately, I wasn't so firm and maybe that's why my child suffered.
How was it, is with you?
Do you pay attention, that the nursing mother's diet plays a role in the behavior of the infant during the night's sleep? Do you think feeding with modified milk causes?, that babies are less likely to have colic and spend more hours sleeping than those who are breastfed?
