Breast milk is best for your baby

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.

6 Tips to Deal with Morning Sickness

Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, often known as morning sickness, is very common in the early stages of pregnancy. And despite its name, it can affect you at any time of day or night, while some women feel sick all day long. But fret not! Here are some useful tips you can use at home to help manage your morning sickness

  1. Prioritise Essential Nutrients via Milk Supplementation.
    Nutrition is even more important during pregnancy. It is essential for the health of both you and your little one. You should continue eating well and supplement with pregnancy milk like Frisomum Gold® that supports the additional nutrient requirements needed by mummy and your little one from the 1st to the 3rd trimester.
     
  2. Choose a diet that offers nausea relief. 
    Foods that are higher in protein and carbohydrates and lower in fat are often better for your pregnant tummy. Pick a protein that offers a longer-lasting relief from nausea such as high-protein foods - nuts, cold meats, and eggs.
     
  3. Smaller meals, more frequently. 
    Instead of eating three big meals, try adjusting to smaller frequent meals throughout the day instead. Experts recommend six snack-type meals spread out over the day. So, keep healthy snack around the house that you can nibble on! Another trick is to eat and drink at different times so you won’t fill up too quickly and your body can properly absorb the nutrients it needs.
     
  4. Pay attention to your aversions and avoid triggers. 
    Spicy foods as well as strong odours like perfumes, chemical cleaners and smoke are common nausea triggers. Thanks to the surging hormones of pregnancy, certain odours might make you nauseous, but probably did not have that effect before you were pregnant. Try to steer clear of strong or offensive smells.
     
  5. Stay hydrated.
    Pregnant women should drink at least eight (8) glasses of liquid daily, especially if you are feeling nauseous as dehydration is a serious consequence of morning sickness. 
     
  6. Be an informed mummy. 
    Pregnancy can be uncomfortable and there a many unknown factors that could be affecting you and your little one. When heading to your next appointment, make sure to: Write down any symptoms you're experiencing. Include EVERYTHING, even if you aren’t sure if they are related to your morning sickness or pregnancy. 
  • Make a list of any medications, vitamins and other supplements you take. Write down doses and how often you take them.
  • Have a family member or close friend accompany you, if possible. You may be given a lot of information at your visit, and it can be difficult to remember everything.
  • Think about what questions you'll ask. Write them down, listing the most important questions first.
  • Write down important information during your visit
