We hear all the time that breastfeeding is best, and it’s true. Breast milk is packed full of nutrients and antibodies that your baby needs to thrive.
But all breast milk is not created equal.
Your breast milk is only as good as what you put in your body. That’s why it’s so important to pay just as much attention to your diet now, as you did while you were pregnant.
But even if you are eating all the right things, your breast milk is probably lacking one key vitamin that your baby needs. In this video, Stacy VanBibber, Registered Dietitian for EatingForBreastfeeding.com, talks about that one vitamin that is missing, why it’s so important, and how to make sure your baby is getting enough of it.
