Diarrhea in a nursing mother during breastfeeding
Nursing mother, of course, should lead a healthy lifestyle, get a full and varied diet and minimize the intake of medications. However, it happens that a woman can have diarrhea during breastfeeding.
One of the most harmless and non-dangerous causes of diarrhea is stress. Many young mothers are nervous at the time of breastfeeding for any reason, there is the development of adrenaline, which prevents the normal operation of the intestine.
Also diarrhea in a nursing woman can be caused by accumulated toxins, unbalanced diet, food poisoning, allergy or infection with viruses or bacteria.
Before starting treatment, you need to find out exactly what caused diarrhea. Perhaps, on the eve you were eating stale food or an unwashed apple. In the event that no suspicious products or drinks were consumed, and diarrhea arose, one should consult a doctor. Diarrhea caused by an allergen will only pass after the complete exclusion of this product from the diet.
If an upset stomach is caused by viruses and infections, then first you need to determine them. Perhaps, this treatment will have to be approached in a complex way and the drugs should be prescribed only by a doctor.
