Doctor Approved Facts And Tips For New Moms And Babies
The Importance of Healthy Habits for Growing Families
It’s no surprise that being a new mom can be challenging. Your time and energy are put towards hectic schedules, escalating costs of raising an infant and making sure you’re caring for your little one properly. Maintaining healthy habits for both mommy and baby is essential once your little one has arrived as well. Dr. Peterson shares her health tips for both pregnant mommies and newborn babies.
- CATCH SOME Z’S: Being a mom brings joy but it can also cause stress. Be sure to get enough sleep - it will help reduce stress, boost your mood and keep you healthy.
- PROPER NUTRITION: Good child nutrition drives brain and body development. Ensure your baby is receiving all the vitamins and nutrients required as they grow. One way to help you do that is by giving your baby Ella’s Kitchen fruit and veggie combos. They are USDA certified organic, free of artificial preservatives and have no added refined sugar or salt. They’re made using only fruits and veggies. Nothing else is added, not even water. Pouches are re-sealable and available in 9 unique flavors for babies 6 months and older.
- HEALTHY HABITS: Keeping your immune system strong after having a baby is important. There are several nutrients that women need in pregnancy such as choline that is necessary for fetal brain development and maintaining optimal brain function later in life. The American Egg Board reports that two large eggs supply more than half the daily recommended amount of choline for pregnant women and one large egg provides children 4-8 years old with nearly 60% of their choline needs. Plus, one large egg containing 6 grams of protein and 9 essential amino acids. For children 2-3 years old, one large egg provides almost half of their daily protein needs.
- PLAYTIME: Babies need opportunities to move, explore and play. Set aside time for play each day to keep them active.
