Which Nursing Supplement is Right for You?

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Throughout your trying-to-conceive journey, vitamin supplementation, tracking ovulation, and living a generally healthy lifestyle likely played an important role in the conception process. Throughout your pregnancy, you made sure to do all the “right” things – prenatal vitamin supplementation, eating healthy for the two of you, exercising, and finally your little one has been welcomed into the world! Now that you are breastfeeding, it’s important to continue vitamin supplementation to help ensure proper nutritional support for Mom and Baby. Given there are unique nutritional requirements for lactating women, Fairhaven Health has developed two comprehensive vitamin supplements specifically formulated for nursing moms – Nursing Blend and Nursing Postnatal. Which one is right for you?

Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Supplement – This supplement provides the vitamin and mineral support nursing moms need to stay healthy and produce quality breast milk for their babies. It contains 200% Daily Value of the following B vitamins: thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12. This complex aids in energy production, the proper function of the immune system and nervous system, and in the production of red and white blood cells. It also contains 700% Daily Value of Vitamin D. Recently, Vitamin D has been shown to play an important role in the prevention and treatment of many conditions, including high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, obesity, seasonal affective disorder, prostate cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Nursing Postnatal also contains 100% Daily Value of most other vitamins and minerals recommended by ObGyns.

The Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Supplement is ideal for women that have a sufficient supply of breast milk and are looking solely for vitamin supplementation. However, if milk supply may be lacking, then we’d recommend the Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement.

Nursing Blend Breastfeeding Supplement – This comprehensive formula contains all the vitamin support that the Nursing Postnatal Breastfeeding Supplement as well as proprietary blend of herbal galactogogues to help support breast milk production. Fenugreek and fennel seed, in particular, have been used for centuries to help stimulate milk production.
