Honey with breastfeeding: all for and against the use of the product
Honey with breastfeeding will only benefit if the mother and baby do not have an individual intolerance to the pollen of flowering plants. But even in the absence of allergy, the product in the diet of a young mother during lactation should be very carefully and not earlier than nine weeks after the start of breastfeeding.
Consider whether it is possible to feed the honey and in what quantities. The product of beekeeping, eaten by a woman in small quantities, but regularly, complements the natural taste of milk with a pleasant sweet note, which usually falls to the taste of a newborn. The child more willingly takes the breast and tries to choose the nutritive mass to the last drop, which leads to increased lactation and alleviation of the condition of the young mother after childbirth, as it will have to be expressed much less often now. Yes, and the baby himself will be much quieter – prolong the hours of night sleep without food, digestion problems and whims associated with gastric colic will go away.
In the autumn-winter period, it is even recommended to replace confectionery and sugar with natural honey by doctors, but only if the mother and child tolerate the product well, and it is purchased from a verified seller. Honey perfectly supports immunity, it stops inflammation in colds and other diseases and even resists fungal infections, often localized in the mouth of the baby.
