My doubt as a new born parent

1. Why does baby hiccups? 

Newborn hiccups are most frequently caused by baby overfeeding, eating too quickly or swallowing a lot of air. “Any of these things can lead to stomach distention,” Forgenie says. When the stomach distends it actually pushes against the diaphragm, which causes it to spasm, and voilà—hiccups!

2. Food that helps with lactation. 

a. Good source of protein 

b. Oatmeal  

According to anecdotal reports, oatmeal is one of the best foods for boosting the milk supply. It is also a good source of nutrients that are important for breastfeeding women and babies.

These nutrients include:

According to the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, oatmeal’s high iron content may explain why it is popular with breastfeeding women. Low iron levels can reduce the milk supply.

Oats are also versatile and easy to prepare, making them a great meal option.

Avoid: High-Mercury Fish

One food that you absolutely want to steer clear of while breastfeeding is fish high in mercury like tuna, swordfish and mackerel. Even in small amounts, mercury toxins can pass through breast milk to your baby and affect their brain and nervous system.
