Information about breastfeeding nutrition.
What is folate and why is it important?
Mommy life can get busy, especially if you're breastfeeding! It can be a challenge to get all your nutritional requirements from your diet alone. Taking multivitamins can help! (*refers to micrograms DFE. DFE = dietary folate equivalents basically takes into account that synthetic folic acid is better absorbed than foods with the natural form of the vitamin)
Getting enough vitamin K? During 3rd trimester, Vitamin K is essential - it helps prevent getting serious bleeding during childbirth. After birth, your body also needs an adequate supply to heal quickly. Prenatal Ease Nursing contains 45 mcg of vitamin K to complement your intake of vitamin K from daily balanced meals.

When babies are first born they tend to have low levels of vitamin K, they are typically given a vitamin K injection shortly after they are born. In addition to this, babies can get their vitamin K from your breast milk! #pregnant & #breastfeeding moms are recommended to get 90 mcg of vitamin K/day. Check if your supplement & daily diet provides enough for you!
