It is necessary to eat a lot and drink a lot

Maternal nutrition should be rational both in quantity and quality. Taking more food does not increase lactation, but even the starving woman to successfully feed their babies. These facts are proved by numerous observations of nursing women of different levels of wealth, in different climate zones and countries. Significantly, when global catastrophes children who are bottle-fed, quickly die from intestinal infections, because they have no opportunity to receive power from clean bottles, and do a mixture of arriving with humanitarian aid, require a minimum of clean water for cooking. While the children are breastfed from hunger and diarrhea do not die, even if the mother experiences a pronounced deficiency of weight and gets a very small amount of food during the day.

At night the child sucks about a liter of milk - thus the recommendation to significantly strengthen drinking regime lactating women are unfounded. Drinking warm liquids for twenty minutes before breastfeeding Breast-feeding: feed - and no nails!  Breast-feeding: feed - and no nails!
