What are Lacta Hoops?

Image

Lacta Hoops are breastfeeding/nursing bracelet that help mothers remember which side of the breast they last nursed. The bracelet is reversible so just flip it and you’ll know what side of the breast to offer on your next feeding.

Some mother uses scrunchies, pony tails, clips, pins etc. but some of these items offer risk to your baby, like pins.  Lacta Hoops is made of 100% silicone (the material used for making some baby toys). It is also food grade and non-toxic. It is also cold and hot resistant therefore you can sterilize it!

It is also a good fashion accessory 🙂 since it is soft and does not contain choking hazard (like beaded bracelets). You can also use it to a distracted baby while nursing.

You can check this link to know how the Lacta Hoops are used 🙂

Diet of Lactating Mothers

My Mommy, Mama and my OB-Gyne told me that eating foods with “sabaw” and malunggay can increase my milk supply! I can say that it can really help (based on experience). I read some blogs that production of breast milk will also depend on your diet.

Last month, when we visited our pediatrician, he gave me a pamphlet about Food Guide Pyramid for Filipino Infants, Children and Adolescents. A portion there that states “Diet of Lactation Mothers”. I would like to share this note with you.

Based on the 2008 Dietary Prescription Food Guide Pyramid Second Edition by PSPGN (Philippine Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition)

I was shocked when I saw the volume of rice we should consume per day !!! Shocking isn’t it when I’m only eating 2 cups per day !!!!
