Breastfeeding your baby can be a wonderful bonding experience. It can also be a time of stress as you learn a new skill while also taking care of a newborn and ensuring that your own health is maintained.
We’ve put together this Breastfeeding Friendly Cookbook to provide you with information about breastfeeding in general, getting started and overcoming common issues as well as learning what foods to include and sometimes to avoid in your breastfeeding diet.
We’ve also included a range of recipes that are ideal for the breastfeeding mother, to ensure that you’re getting enough nutrients to have the energy you need to take care of your baby. The meals included are not only healthy and perfect for breastfeeding mums, they’re also quick and easy to prepare and get onto the table.
If family and friends are asking how they can help support you in the early days of new motherhood, you could suggest that they make a large batch of one of these recipes. This will help keep the freezer stocked with healthy meals that you can defrost and enjoy.
We hope you enjoy this special time with your new baby. Try and remember that looking after yourself with plenty of healthy, nutritious food, is vital to a successful breastfeeding relationship and happy, healthy mum.
