Mekhi is now around 5 months old and I am still breast feeding him. I love being able to give my son that liquid gold! Why have I chosen to breast feed, you might ask? Well for one a mothers milk gives your baby more than just good nutrition, it provides the most important substances to fight infection.
Breastfeeding has medical and psychological benefits for both of you!
Personally I want to ensure that Mekhi has a strong immune system, so if I eat right he is also eating right as well.
To continue my breast milk production, I do these things.
- Eat Oats
- Allow my son skin to skin contact
- Drink plenty of water
- Rest when I can
- Focus on some self-care
Now that he is 5 months he is also eating food, so I don’t pump as often as I use too, only when I need too. It helps to make sure he is full and sometimes when Im not with him I will supplement.
As long as your baby is happy and fed, do what you will. But keep in mind that Liquid Gold will not be found anywhere else except a mothers milk.
