Dr told me overfeeding is when baby dw to drink but we force him/her to drink.
Don't worry, mama! Just feed on demand. Baby will know when to stop.. :)
What supplements do you take while breastfeeding? Is it a must to take such supplements?
Blackmores, calcium fish oil
I still eat calcium, iron and fish oil. :)
I don't take any but made sure I eat well.
My gynae advises to eat calcium and iron for mama and DHA, vitamins for baby to get via BM
Not a must but it’s advisable.
