Mommy Advice- Breastfeeding Question
Hello all you mommies out there!
I am only breastfeeding with lovebug and so far it is going great.
I caught some sort of bug this week and she seems to be affected by it. I'm going to call the dr tomm to get her an appt since she's been throwing up right after eating poor thing
So for the last few days I haven't been able to keep much food down and it got me concerned about the lack of nutrients she may or may not be getting. That also led me to think about healthy eating in general when breastfeeding.
With the hubs gone I'm not eating the most balanced meals although I try. I know I could do better. Are there any books or resources out there that provide info on what to eat while breastfeeding
And another question. I haven't started pumping yet due to my pump breaking and having to exchange it. Anyway did you allow yourself any type of alcoholic beverage while breastfeeding? Some friends have said one glass of beer or wine will help milk production. I'm not sure if that's true and have stayed away from any alcoholic beverage but a glass of wine sounds so good lately. Is it better to pump and dump directly after? How long does the alcohol stay in your system? There's so much I don't know!
Thanks for all your help
