Eating properly and taking good care of your body is crucial especially if you intend to breastfeed your newborn. As a nursing mum, breastfeeding requires additional nutritional demands to ensure a sufficient intake of vitamins and minerals are delivered to the baby through breast milk.

Increase your calcium intake during breastfeeding

The changes that occur during the period of pregnancy and breastfeeding place extra demands on your body. Some of these may affect your bones and causes your bone mass to decrease substantially.

A nursing mother loses calcium daily from breastfeeding. As the growing baby has an increased need for calcium, it is drawn from the mother’s bones if she does not get enough calcium from a diet with calcium-rich foods. Without replacing the lost calcium, this may result in a loss of bone mass and other bone-related diseases.

Good sources of calcium include:

  • Dark green, leafy vegetables
  • Seeds such as chia and sesame seeds
  • Tofu and nuts like almonds
