3 Things You Need To Know About Feeding Your Baby
Did anyone else feel scared, stressed, and confused when it came to feeding your baby after birth? No? Just me? Well honestly, I was freaked out! Was she getting enough? Was she eating too much? Am I doing this right? There is SO much information out there and it can be overwhelming, especially for new moms! In reality, there are only 3 key things you really need to know when it comes to feeding your baby!
No matter if you are a first-time mom, or a seasoned mom, feeding your baby can seem daunting at times! Every baby is different, but there are a few things that I have found to be pretty much the same across the board. So if you are a new mom, stressing about feeding your new baby…Stop…Breathe…Relax… I promise it is all going to be okay!
1 Baby Has A Tiny Tummy
First and foremost, know that your new bundle of joy has a tiny tummy! I have heard so many mom friends stressing about their baby not eating enough only a few days after birth. Typically, a new baby will have a tiny tummy that grows with time. For reference, day one is the size of a cherry…Day three is about the size of a walnut ( 1 Oz)…Moving up to the size of an egg ( 8.5-5 Oz) by one month. So if you are worried that your new little one is not eating enough, try not to stress. Contact your doctor if you are worried, but know that new little ones have teeny tiny tummies.
2 Good Gut Bacteria
The first 6 months of baby’s life are key to establishing good gut bacteria. This good bacteria play a huge role in baby’s autoimmune and metabolic development. It can also help provide a protective wall in baby’s tummy to assist with keeping the bad bacteria out. Therefore helping with issues such as colic, allergies, obesity, and more later on in life. According to studies, 9 out of 10 babies experience a disruption in their gut!
Scary? Sure, but there is something you can do to help! Evivo is a leader in infant probiotics! Helping balance baby’s gut and improve their health long term. All you have to do is mix their innovative product with breast milk and give it to your baby with their feeding syringe. Super simple and super great for your little one!
