TIPS FOR HEALTHY BREAST-FEEDING

 

Test blood glucose levels frequently.

Eat and drink. Watch for hypoglycemia and dehydration. Snack and drink water, juice or low-fat milk while you breast-feed.

Eating is important during night-time feedings to prevent hypoglycemia in the morning.

Visit a dietician. Dieticians help balance meals with exercise and insulin regimens. Discuss a diet and exercise program to return to pre-pregnancy weight.
