Postnatal Vitamins and Breastfeeding

Most medical professionals will agree that breastfeeding is the healthiest and best way to feed your new baby. In addition to providing essential vitamins and nutrients, breast milk also helps protect your baby against infection.

Many experts assert, however, that simply eating a well-balanced diet may not be enough to ensure breastfeeding mothers get enough of the nutrients needed to maintain optimal health. Most doctors suggest breastfeeding women take some sort of multivitamin to help supplement their diets.

Often times, women opt to continue with the same prenatal vitamin used throughout her pregnancy. Nursing women, however, have unique nutritional needs that are not necessarily addressed by a typical prenatal vitamin to help ensure optimal health for both mom and baby.

Nursing Postnatal by Fairhaven Health was formulated by an MD and leading lactation specialist to meet the unique nutritional needs of breastfeeding women. In addition to providing 100% of essential vitamins and minerals, Nursing Postnatal contains additional amounts of certain vitamins shown to be particularly important for breastfeeding women.

Optimized specifically for lactating women, Nursing Postnatal includes 700% daily value of Vitamin D and 200% daily value of B vitamins. The importance of Vitamin D cannot be understated. Research indicates that most women have low levels of Vitamin D, which has significant consequence for their health, due to the fact that Vitamin D plays a role in the prevention of a wide range of health conditions including diabetes and various forms of cancer.

Although the current Daily Value for vitamin D is set at only 400 IU, many experts are concerned that this amount grossly underestimates our need for Vitamin D. Nursing Postnatal includes 700% of the Daily Value (2800 IU) of Vitamin D, an amount that can help ensure that breastfeeding moms have sufficient levels of Vitamin D and that their breast milk contains Vitamin D.

In the event that you experience any difficulty establishing or maintaining your milk supply, try Nursing Blend from Fairhaven Health. Nursing Blend contains comprehensive vitamin and mineral support (the same multivitamin complex as is found in Nursing Postnatal described above), and also helps to promote breast milk production by providing fenugreek, fennel seed, and coriander, culinary herbs that have been used for centuries by nursing mothers to encourage a healthy breast milk supply.

And, by providing a unique combination of whole fenugreek seed powder along with a concentrated fenugreek seed extract, Nursing Blend offers an equivalent dose of 2 grams of fenugreek in each daily dose to help increase milk supply.
