Can Essential Oils Help A Breastfeeding Mom?

 

Did you know breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby? On top of strengthening the bond between you and your baby, breastfeeding has a lot of other advantages: lower risk of infections, better immune system, less colic, and lower risk of SIDS. There are benefits for mommy as well: faster weight loss after pregnancy and lower risk of breast cancer are just 2 that come to mind quickly.

In addition, while you’re feeding, or just holding baby, add a little lavender on the back of your shoulder. That way, your baby is not directly inhaling the scent, but will come to associate the smell with security and relaxation – works if dad uses it as well!!
