Sonali Shivlani

Long hours of breast feeding, sleepless nights and inadequate nutrition can cause a new mom to feel weak and lethargic as well as experience aches and pains. Try and get help in baby chores, ensure you nap when the baby does, house hold chores can be done later, take all your Prenatal supplements, do about ten to fifteen minutes of gentle stretches as this will help with your circulation and finally ensure that you eat a balanced diet. Do not ignore any foods. Pulses and legumes are also healthy and they do not cause gas to the baby. If it persists do discuss the same with your doctor as additional supplements may be prescribed
