Nourishing Motherhood: Ayurvedic Wisdom for Supporting Breastfeeding

Dear Marigoldbub Moms,
Congratulations on embarking on the beautiful journey of motherhood! At Marigoldbub, we understand the significance of nurturing both you and your little one. As you navigate the world of breastfeeding, we’re here to share the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda, offering insights and tips to support you on this incredible adventure.

  1. Embrace Nourishing Foods: Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of foods that promote vitality and well-being. Incorporate lactation-friendly foods into your diet, such as fenugreek, fennel seeds, and sesame seeds. These ingredients are known to enhance milk production and provide essential nutrients for both you and your baby.
  2. Stay Hydrated with Herbal Infusions: Hydration is key during breastfeeding, and Ayurveda recommends herbal infusions to nourish and replenish. Try sipping on fennel tea or a blend of cumin and coriander-infused water to support healthy lactation and aid digestion. Carry that water bottle everywhere you go, aim for 100oz daily!
  3. Prioritize Rest and Relaxation: As mother’s we often forget about ourselves, but I cannot emphasize the importance of adequate rest for new mothers. Create a serene environment for breastfeeding, allowing both you and your baby to relax during this intimate bonding time. Practice gentle deep breathing or meditation to enhance the calming energy. Sleep when the baby sleeps!
  4. Follow a Nurturing Routine: Establishing a routine aligns with Ayurvedic principles, promoting balance and harmony. Create a breastfeeding schedule that works for both you and your baby, allowing your body to adapt to a natural rhythm. Consistency in routine can positively impact milk supply and overall well-being.
  5. Ayurvedic Massage for Postpartum Recovery: Consider incorporating Ayurvedic postpartum massage, Abhyanga, into your self-care routine. This practice helps with muscle recovery, relaxation, and overall well-being. Use warm sesame oil infused with Ayurvedic herbs for a nourishing and rejuvenating experience. Try Marigoldbub’s Baby Massage oil for you and the baby; Ashwagandha will relax you while Bala Root will support muscle strength.
  6. Mindful Bonding with Your Baby: – Use breastfeeding as an opportunity to bond with your baby. Create a tranquil space, maintain eye contact, and savor the intimate moments together. This not only fosters emotional well-being but also enhances the flow of oxytocin, the hormone responsible for milk release.

Remember, every mother’s journey is unique, and it’s essential to listen to your body and your baby. Ayurveda provides a holistic approach to breastfeeding, focusing on the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of the postpartum experience.
