Breastfeeding mums, and expectant mothers who are deciding whether to breastfeed, share a common concern: Will I make enough milk?
In Boost Your Breast Milk, lactation expert Alicia C.
Simpson offers practical and clearguidance on nursing, how to recognize low milk supply, and what to do if it happens, including: breastfeeding basics--preparing to nurse, latching techniques, and scheduling feedings; the causes of low milk supply and milk slumps; in-depth information on nursing mothers' nutritional needs; and 75 recipes that make the most of lactogenic, or milkboosting, ingredients.
Oats, whole grains, beans and legumes, and papaya are just some of the foods that support milk production. (And they are all plant-based, so Simpson keeps the recipes vegan--her specialty!) These are dishes that the whole family can enjoy, with the added benefit of keeping Mom healthy and well supplied with milk for baby.
