Breastfeeding provides the necessary nutrients which are important for the baby’s growth. This is considered a vital stage in every mother’s life. Breastfeeding keeps your child healthy and protects him against all types of infections, allergies, and diseases. Every mother has to breastfeed her child for at least six months, but not every mother is able to do so due to lack of milk formation. Learn about these 8 foods which help in increasing lactation.
1 Fennel seeds
Regular consumption of fennel seeds while breastfeeding increases milk production and also helps improve digestion, since most women suffer from constipation after delivery. It also helps in improving the baby’s digestion process.
You can either eat them raw or you can brew a fennel tea. You can also soak them in 1 cup of water overnight and drink it early in the morning. You can also add fennel seeds in a pan of water and boil; let it cool down and store in a bottle. Drink the concoction and make sure to consume all of it by the end of the day.
