actuallyà it is just a modest addition, that può be not necessary, since the woman who breastfeeds almost always decreases the energy cost for the activity; in physics.
Often, then there is a modest “overweight” purchased in pregnancy that must be disposed of.
If necessary, however, the introduction of these additional calories should be preferably distributed throughout the day, from the time that lactation is a process that requires energy in a continuous way.
The increase of calories required for breastfeeding remains unchanged regardless of how long this lasts. With regard to nutrients, breast-feeding is the increased use of proteins (40% più, i.e.; about 20 g).
it also Increases the need for vitamins of the B complex, as well asé of vitamin C, A And e, to a variable extent depending on the type of vitamin between 25% and 70% of the total amount; used in the usual conditions. The need for vitamin D increases instead of 4 times. lastly, as regards the increase in the use of calcium, phosphorus and iodine, it is equal to approximately 50%.
it is good to clarify that the fulfillment of all of these food requests does not require any changes in the normal diet of always the purché it is a balanced and varied diet, on the basis of the general principles that are the foundation of proper nutrition; not needed then (except for specific health situations evaluated by the doctor), additions «vitamin a» or other; only need to learn how to eat well, if già you have not had before.
ultimately, then, the feeding (and già before that, pregnancy) are occasions to review their supply making the changes necessary, and to keep them afterwards, in addition to the contingent situations of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The water requirement is slightly increased, but it is not necessary that the mother should drink beyond thirst that feels. In fact, in response to the suckling of the nipple by the child, the kidney of the mother is capable of saving water, reducing the volume emitted with the urine.
liquids, therefore, should be introduced only if you feel thirsty or not, drink perché’ milk and not vice versa. Often an abundant introduction of liquid dà the impression to the woman to produce more milk, actuallyà è only one feeling emotional.
Among the foods expected in a normal healthy diet, there are no «they waste» milk; does not need specific restrictions. Some foods actuallyà, can give, if consumed in generous doses, «flavor» other than milk, getting used to it, così the child to different flavors.
do Not è except that any child can appreciate these occasional «fixes» the taste of the milk! is Not is there any food that «milk»: è the eat properly that work well in the mammary gland.
Useless then, and sometimes even harmful, to venture into the diets that say to increase the milk, or to force himself to drink it (perhaps unwillingly) large amount; of milk or beer.
For another, the excess milk is likely to induce sensitization reactions in the child; as far as the beer then, you must not underestimate its alcohol content, which canò become significant when they consume generous quantities.
alcohol has a harmful effect on the baby, which varies depending on the doses taken by the mother. It is recommended to limit the amount; of wine with meals, and in particular, to avoid the consumption of spirits (whisky, cognac and also bitters, aperitifs etc.,) due to the easeà, and the quicknessà of the passage of the alcohol in the milk.
The t&is; and the coffee, if consumed in quantity; excessive, to cause the passage in the milk of substances exciting, with possible negative effects on the child. It is recommended that you limit your intake to two servings per day.
