1 min to read Apr 1, 2021

Every mum produces her own unique milk because her diet influences the amount of nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin D, B-complex vitamins, iodine, essential fatty acids, and the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid DHA. It is important that mums follow a healthy diet and drink plenty of water or other liquids while breastfeeding for adequate milk production.
