Essential Nutrition for Postpartum and Breastfeeding Women

What’s in our Daily Regimen and Why Does it Matter? Taking care of a newborn is a tough job. Long days, no sleep, never-ending dirty diapers, and the list goes on. The thought of taking time to care for yourself, either physically or emotionally, is almost laughable. The fact is though, your body needs your care now more than ever. As the mom of a young baby, your body is working hard to: Restore nutrient stores that were depleted during pregnancy Heal from labor and delivery Produce breast milk Balance hormonal changes Compensate for reduced sleep Keep up with the demands of motherhood While eating a balanced diet was never easy, your postpartum nutritional needs are different than your prenatal needs.  That’s why we designed our Daily Regimen for Postpartum and Breastfeeding Moms to easily provide the nutritional support to keep up with all things #MomLife.  The Regimen’s daily vitamin packets include: Postnatal Vitamin: This mighty vitamin can replace the prenatal vitamin that you were taking before you delivered your baby. It’s specifically formulated to meet the needs of your body after baby and serves as a great multi-vitamin to help your mood, energy, and recovery. It also accounts for the amount of nutrients that your baby is removing from your body through your breastmilk, so there’s plenty for everyone!   Lactation Vitamin: These two little capsules are the power behind your breastmilk production. Taking this supplement every day can give your milk supply the reinforcement it needs to battle through those particularly stressful days that can otherwise reduce your output.   Omega 3/DHA: Your brain and baby’s brain both benefit greatly from rich fatty acids. The struggle of mom brain is real but omega 3s can ward off symptoms and lift your mood. Furthermore, these early months are critical for the continued cognitive development for your baby who can only get these essential fats through your breastmilk.
