It can be said that lactation is an extension of pregnancy as far as an infant's dependence on the mother is concerned. Breastmilk is very rich in proteins and protective, it seeds and nurtures the microbiome with beneficial bacteria, until it is fully mature. To support breastfeeding, a mother's body undergoes several physiological changes and the requirements of the body increase. The effects of any nutrition inadequacies during this period can adversely affect the total quantity of milk produced, although the quality of milk might be maintained at the cost of maternal tissues.
In this article, we explore what dietary nutritional elements a lactating/breastfeeding mother is required to add to their daily routine post-pregnancy. To help us understand the diet chart better, we have Priyanka Lulla, clinical dietician t Sir H.N. Reliance Foundation Hospital, Mumbai, with us.
