lactogenic foods Consumption Methodology for Breastfeeding/nursing Mummies

Breastfeeding your baby consistently is the best way to increase your milk supply. There are foods, spices and herbs that contain specific nutrients that support lactation. In our BoostMyMilk series, we have specially curated a list of lactogenic foods (galactagogues) such as almonds, walnuts, fennel, garlic, brewers’ yeast, chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, almond oil, medjool dates, oats etc.

omega-3-fatty-acids

Omega 3 is one of the essential fatty acids that is crucial for brain and eye development. Studies have shown that supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy may be beneficial for cognitive development in children.

protein

Protein is the nutrient that serves as your tissue’s building blocks and fosters growth. Both baby and yourself require protein to build, repair and maintain your muscles, tissue, skin and organs. During lactation, your body uses protein to produce breast milk and to sustain your growing baby. It helps your baby grow new cells in his organs, muscles and brain. You need extra 20-25g protein per day.

plant based protein from nuts Consumption Methodology for Breastfeeding/nursing Mummies

Studies have associated plant-based diets with healthy weight maintenance, lower risk of developing chronic diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well as cancer prevention. The positive health benefits of plant foods are linked to dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals content. 

fibre

High-fiber diets are associated with good bacteria growth in the gut that could help prevent non-communicable chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, allergies, and asthma. Sources of fiber include wholegrains (brown rice, oats, whole wheat, rye), legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas), nuts and a variety of fruits and vegetables. Besides high in fiber, oats also help in milk production.

Fluids Consumption Methodology for Breastfeeding/nursing Mummies

Adequate fluid intake is also important to ensure adequate supply of breast milk because breast milk consists of more than 80% of water. You need at least 1.5-2L per day to produce sufficient breast milk. The best is water, you can include milk, juices, and soups as part of your fluid intake.

Secondly, understand the amount of breastmilk you would like to produce (let’s call it the “required amount”). If you are way below the required amount, you may consider consuming more than what we have recommended. Once you have increased the level of your breast milk, you can regulate the intake accordingly.

Our Roasted Almom Milk has a high viscosity, it is produced this way intentionally. Our recipe has a high almond to water ratio (we could not disclose as it is part of our recipe) while most off-the shelf almond milk has only 2-3% almond, hence it has high viscosity.

Almonds are galactagogues. We do not recommend you to dilute the Roasted Almom Milk. By diluting it, it means you are consuming lesser galactagogues, which makes it less effective.
