Our sponsor for the month is Theralogix. They would like to introduce you to their latest product TheraNatal® Lactation One postnatal vitamin supplement.
You want to give your baby what’s best – your pure breast milk and nothing more.
Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do to support your baby’s health, and good nutrition plays a key role in your baby’s growth and development. Nutrient needs during breastfeeding are different than at any other time in a woman’s life.
Research has continuously shown that one specific nutrient is very important for your baby’s overall growth and development. That nutrient is vitamin D.
The amount of vitamin D found naturally in breast milk is too low to prevent vitamin D deficiency in most breastfed infants. Breast milk is generally low in vitamin D because it is difficult to consume adequate vitamin D through diet alone. Moreover, most women are not exposed to enough sunlight each day for their breast milk to contain the appropriate amount of vitamin D for baby.
As a result, The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends giving breastfed babies 400 IU vitamin D drops each day. As many moms would agree, giving vitamin D drops can be difficult for a variety of reasons. In fact, research has shown that less than 20% of families follow the recommendation to give vitamin D drops each day, increasing the risk of vitamin D deficiency in their babies.1,2
A recent study asked breastfeeding moms if they would prefer to take vitamin D themselves rather than give their babies a supplement. An overwhelming majority (88%) of breastfeeding moms reported they would rather supplement themselves than give their babies vitamin D drops.3
As a new mom you have enough to do without adding vitamin D drops to the list. Moreover, many moms do not like the artificial flavors and dyes found in most infant vitamin D drops. You want to give your baby what’s best; your pure breast milk and nothing more.
Ground breaking research by Dr. Bruce Hollis (see KellyMom’s interview) concluded that breastfeeding mothers could supplement themselves daily with 6,400 IU of vitamin D from a dietary supplement in order to provide enough vitamin D to their babies through their breast milk alone.4
This is important because it gives nursing mothers a safe, simple alternative to drops.
