Being a mum calls for dedication. Before your newborn arrives, try to plan ahead on delegating tasks between your husband or other family members. This is an important stage for you to recuperate and get as much rest to regain lost energy from your childbirth phase. Nutrition during confinement is vital so you’re ensuring to eat the right food that increases your breast milk supply. Drink plenty of fluids as they are necessary to replace the lost fluids in breast milk production.

- Eat a well-balanced and nutrient dense diet to ensure that you obtain all the nutrients essential for your breast feeding phase.
- Sleep when the baby sleeps. This may be only a few minutes rest several times a day, but these minutes can add up.
- Think positive and get the help from your loved ones, or join a mothers’ support group to cope with post-natal blues.
