• Features of nutrition after childbirth

    When breastfeeding, substances that enter the body with food penetrate the milk and can cause the formation of gas in the baby's belly or an allergic rash. The trouble is that the sensitivity of the tummies of different kids is individual, and the woman herself will have to choose her own diet by trial and possible mistakes. I recommend in this case to make a list in which it is necessary to mark the time of using this or that product and the child's reaction in 18 hours. Perhaps, acceptable for both of your products will be few. Do not lose heart: by the age of 5-6 months, the baby's intestines will grow stronger, and you will be able to diversify your diet.

    A breastfeeding woman is recommended to eat 200 grams of meat or fish per day, 100-150 g of cottage cheese, 20-30 g of cheese, 500-600 g of vegetables, and 200-300 g of fruit. From fats it is better to use creamy( 15-20 g) and vegetable( 25-30 g) oils. Many women enjoy eating porridge, including fast food. It is necessary to drink no more than 1 liter of milk or sour milk drinks.

    Here is the list of foods that are generally not negatively affected by infants: low-fat cottage cheese, sour cream, cheese, kefir, low-fat yogurt, potatoes, porridges( buckwheat, rice, oatmeal, corn), beef, low-fat pork, turkey meat,green apples.

    For products that babies usually tolerate poorly, they include cabbage, beans, coffee, kvass, beer, salted and smoked fish, fatty and smoked sausages, canned goods, sweet fizzy drinks( such as cola).

    Foods that can cause allergies in the baby and which should be used with caution: fish, eggs, chicken meat, strawberries, raspberries, strawberries, black currants, pineapples, melons, persimmons, pomegranates, citrus fruits, coffee, cocoa, mushrooms, mustard, spices.

    A nursing woman makes a menu for herself, taking into account the child's reaction, because not all babies have so-called forbidden foods that can cause negative reactions. In addition, the child usually tolerates the use of

    in small quantities by the mother of these products in small quantities. This primarily applies to vegetables and fruits, so necessary for enriching the diet.

    After the birth, many women suffer from constipation. To combat them, recommend a diet rich in raw and cooked vegetables, fruits and fruit juices, as well as the use of wheat bran. If you are breastfeeding, you may, although not necessarily, have to give up some foods that regulate the stool well, such as beets, cabbage, prunes, dried apricots. In such cases, you need to drink enough fluids( to start a glass of cold water in the morning on an empty stomach).Many women with constipation helps a spoon of vegetable oil( preferably olive oil) on an empty stomach or a glass of kefir.

    In case of anemia after delivery, the body should receive enough iron from the food( the menu is selected individually).Especially useful for anemia is meat, besides, it does not cause intestinal colic in a child. Yes, and cook it easier and faster if you use an oven or a microwave oven, and the boiled meat can be cooked without problems.

    For anemia, it is recommended to eat 200 grams of meat per day or 250 grams of fish, 1 egg, dairy products not exceeding 1 kg( cheese, cottage cheese, kefir and others), 80-100 g of fats, about 800 g of vegetables and fruits, some of which are neededto eat in raw form( carrots, turnips, apples).A good side dish for meat will be porridge - dishes from cereals also contain iron. A large amount of calcium and phosphorus, which is contained in milk and cheese, can somewhat inhibit the absorption of iron, so it makes sense to share the use of dairy and meat products. It is recommended to combine foods rich in iron, with foods that contain a large amount of vitamin C, which improves the absorption of iron in the stomach. Do not drink tea or coffee immediately after eating: the tannin contained in them has the property of binding iron. It is recommended to use specially fortified foods( cereals, cereal for breakfast, bread, etc.).

    Here are a few recipes for meals that you can include in your daily diet to enhance the defenses of the body. They include fresh vegetables and fruits, dried fruits, nuts, sour-milk products, oat flakes, which contain coarse fiber, which contributes to the good work of the gastrointestinal tract:
