For mums, producing milk is a hard job: in terms of effort and calories, it equals a day of full-time activities. For this reason, especially for the first month, make sure you rest as much as possible: the cleaning can wait! Then remember that breastfeeding works according to the law of supply and demand. This means that if the baby sucks, it stimulates the breast to secrete milk. Drink plenty of water to ensure proper hydration, replenishing the fluids lost through breastfeeding.
