In the first couple of months after giving birth to a baby, it’s vital for a mother to take good care of herself. Plenty of rest, keeping well hydrated and having a good diet will all aid in the rebuilding of cells, which helps the body to get back to its optimal health.

When breastfeeding, a different diet isn’t necessary but it is of paramount importance to include plenty of nutrient-dense foods in the diet. This will not only encourage a good milk supply, but it will essentially sustain the mother with the energy needed to feed a little person.
