Replenish nutrients with Prenate® Restore, a pregnancy vitamin designed for the needs of breastfeeding mothers and babies
January 30, 2015
Breastfeeding can be demanding on a mother. Aside from the time commitment, breastfeeding can be physically demanding on a mother’s body. A woman typically produces 19-30 ounces of milk and feeds her baby (1-6 months of age) anywhere from 8 up to 12 times a day.1
On average 400-600 calories are burned daily from breastfeeding.2 In fact, breastfeeding depletes just as many calories as other aerobic activities:
- Swimming for 50 minutes at a moderate pace
- Cycling for 60 minutes at a moderate pace
- Singles Tennis for 45 minuets
- Jogging for 45 minutes at a 5 mph pace
- Jumping Rope for 30 minutes
While many women enjoy the weight loss from breastfeeding, they do not enjoy the depleted nutrients and energy reserves that breastfeeding causes. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that women who are breastfeeding eat the same amount of recommended calories they consumed prior to becoming pregnant. 1 This can help speed the process of losing any baby weight, but does not always help replenish your nutrient and energy supply.
While eating a balanced diet is always recommended, one good way to ensure that mom is refueling her energy reserves and getting the nutrients she and her baby needs is to supplement with Prenate® Restore. This softgel pregnancy vitamin is specifically designed for the needs of breastfeeding mothers and babies. In addition to 15 vitamins and nutrients, Prenate® Restore contains probiotics and DHA that replenish mom’s reserves and supports gastrointestinal and immune health for both mother and baby.
