Tips for Mamachows
Produce milk for breastfeeding
1. Breast-milk production begis with the low of supply and demand
2. Increase intake of expanding foods (vegetables, soup, shells, fruits, water)
3. Refrain from consuming chocolates, sweet and salty foods
4. Before and after feeding drink at least 2 glasses of water
5. Start where you ended. Start feeding with your right. After offer the left breast. On youe second feeding, offer the same breast were you ended. In this case it’s the left breast. This way your breast will be empty and will signal your brains to produce more milk.
6. Refrain from drinking tea and coffee
7. When away from baby pump every 2 hours

Will it be painful to breast milk? No, if you do it right.

I hope =)
I’m glad to attend this seminar; it uplifts me and gives hope. Hoping for the best breastfeeding journey with my upcoming baby.
