You don’t need to “drink milk” to “make milk!”
Many infants will develop symptoms associated with dairy protein sensitivity such as crying, colic and rashes. The dairy proteins are transferred to the infant via the mother’s breast milk. A plant- based diet is rich in nutrients and will help you feel great! Include calcium-rich foods in your diet such as tofu, milk substitutes (i.e. almond, hemp, soy milks), almonds, sesame seeds, green leafy vegetables, etc.

Avoid junk food!
Junk food gives you a lot of extra Calories and limited nutrients. These foods will sap your energy! Instead, eat fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts and seeds.

Catch Your Zzzzzs!
Take a nap when your baby naps! Resist the temptation to do a million things while your baby is sleeping. As your baby gets older, you will be able to do more. Don’t push yourself!  

Get outside daily!
 Fresh air and sunshine are critical for your physical and mental health. Yes, even in the rain and the snow. Like the Norwegians say: "There is no such thing as bad weather; just bad clothing!"

Be Healthy! Enjoy Your Baby!
