When it comes to babies, Breastfeeding is best, and provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness. During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. Infant formula is intended to replace breast-milk when mothers do not breastfeed. A decision not to breast-feed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, could reduce the supply of breast-milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use, such as the use of unboiled water, unboiled bottles or incorrect dilution may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, such as the preparation requirements and the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.

Our Baby Website mentions food, toddler milks and sometimes infant formula.

Morning Sickness

Amid your joy about your pregnancy, you may experience morning sickness – nausea with or without vomiting, that can occur any time of the day or night. Some women don’t get it, some feel it now and then, others are sick several times a day for months. Generally, it settles after the third month.

Pregnancy and nauseaEase the quease

Morning sickness is often one of the first signs of pregnancy. So what causes it? During the first trimester, a rise in hormone levels (progesterone and oestrogen) causes your sense of taste to change and makes your sense of smell more acute. For many women, this leads to common morning sickness symptoms of nausea and vomiting. Stress and anxiety may also play a role in this hypersensitivity.

Morning sickness remedies – in short there is no quick fix – other than once your baby is born!  Here are some tips to help you survive though:

  • Eat frequent, small meals. Taking little meals throughout the day will help keep your blood sugar levels steady and keep your stomach filled to minimise that queasy feeling.
  • For breakfast, opt for slow-release carbohydrates (whole grain cereals & breads; eggs on toast, etc.).
  • Snack smart. Eat foods such as crackers, wholegrain toast, a hot baked potato, cooked pasta, cooked rice or fruit.
  • Avoid rich and greasy foods which may sit in the stomach longer..
  • Get enough sleep – Sleep helps your body rest, renew itself, and helps relax you.  Women who don’t get enough rest may experience worse nausea.
  • Avoid stress, if you do experience nausea and vomiting during your pregnancy, you want to be able to manage it and being stressed isn’t going to help.
  • Get out of bed slowly. An abrupt change from lying flat to standing increases the feeling of dizziness.
  • Go easy on spicy foods. Dishes prepared with peppers and garlic may aggravate your pregnancy nausea.
  • Reduce smells. Keep your kitchen well ventilated to exhaust lingering cooking odours. Try eating cold foods as they have less odour and may be easier to swallow.
  • Drink water or suck on ice. This helps you avoid dehydration if you’ve been vomiting. Contact your doctor if you vomit more than twice daily.
  • Exercise. It will help you relieve the stress that may be contributing to your morning sickness and may also help you sleep better at night.
  • Talk to your doctor if you are concerned about your morning sickness, there may be other options you had not thought of such as anti-nausea medication that is safe through pregnancy.
