Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

think i might have it sorted
Food
Guide
Pyramid
Daily Food Choices for Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women

University of Maine Cooperative Extension
Bulletin #4297

Eat the recommended number of servings each day from the five groups to maintain your health.

The Food Guide Pyramid is a general guide that lets you choose healthy foods that are right for you. The Pyramid calls for eating foods from the five food groups shown in the three lower sections to get the calories, vitamins and minerals (nutrients) you need for growth and good health. Each of the food groups provide some, but not all, of the nutrients you need. Foods in one group cannot replace foods in another. No one food group is more important than another. For good health, they are all important.

KEY:
These symbols show fat and added sugars in foods.
Circle inside squareFat (naturally occurring and added)

Triangle inside square Sugars (added)

Food Guide Pyramid

Fluids: 8 cups (64 ounces) for breastfeeding women. It is important for breastfeeding mom to have enough fluid each day. This helps you make enough milk for your baby.

My Goal Is: ___________________________________________________________________
What Counts as 1 Serving?

The amount you eat may be more than one serving. For example, a dinner portion of spaghetti would count as 2 to 3 servings.

Bread, Cereal, Rice and Pasta Group

Bread
Vegetable Group

Tomatoes
Fruit Group


Grapes
Milk, Yogurt and Cheese Group

Milk
Meat, Poultry, Fish, Dry Beans, Eggs and Nuts
Group

1 slice of bread

1 pancake or waffle (5 inch)
cup of chopped raw or cooked vegetables

1 cup of leafy raw vegetables
1 piece of fruit or melon wedge

cup of juice

cup of canned fruit

cup of dried fruit
1 cup of skim or low-fat milk or yogurt

1 ounces of natural cheese

2 ounces of processed cheese

1 cups of ice cream or frozen yogurt

1 cups cottage cheese
2 to 3 ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry, or fish

2 hot dogs

1 cup of cooked beans

2 eggs

A Closer Look at Fat and Sugar

Fats & Sweets: Limit calories from these, especially if you need to lose weight.The tip of the Food Guide Pyramid contains the fats and sweets. These foods include salad dressing, cream, butter, margarine, sugar, candy, soda pop, sweet desserts and some snack and fast foods. These foods provide calories but not many vitamins and minerals. They can be used in moderation to add variety to your diet once you have chosen foods from the other food groups.

When choosing foods for a healthful diet, consider the fat and sugar that might be in foods in the other food groups -- for example, French fried potatoes. Fat and sugar is not just in the tip of the Pyramid, but it is also hidden in many of the fast and convenience foods we eat. The best idea is to choose foods from the five groups of the Pyramid that are as close to natural as possible -- not precooked, boxed or bagged. That way, it is easiest to choose a healthful diet without a lot of added fat, sugar and salt. Foods already processed are often more expensive than those you fix yourself.
