New mothers face a delicate nutritional balancing act. Because pregnancy and childbirth deplete essential nutrients from the mother's body to provide health and growth for her developing baby, a woman faces her greatest nutritional needs in the year after she gives birth.
Not only does she need to replace lost nutrients but, if she decides to breastfeed her new child, she also needs to ensure an ample, nutritious milk supply.
Scientific evidence continues to underscore the fact that nursing provides a host of benefits to newborn babies and their mothers. In fact, some experts consider breastfeeding nature’s vaccine for newborns.
In addition to providing protective antibodies which help prevent and fight infections, breast milk reduces the risk of allergic conditions while contributing to the development of a baby’s brain and nervous system.
Nursing plays such an important role in childhood development that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breast milk as the sole source of food for a new infant for at least the first six months of life.
The recently developed MommySlim® Weight Management Program helps establish long-term weight management strategies which help a new mother regain control of her health and weight while providing optimum nutrition for the best quality breast milk.
Designed to fit into the demanding schedule of a new mother, this system is based on solid nutritional and exercise guidelines and incorporates scientifically balanced MommySlim® Meal Replacement Shakes to meet the macro- and micro-nutrient needs of the mother and nursing infant.
This provides welcome relief for new mothers struggling to regain their pre-pregnancy figure. Some shy away from breast feeding because they want to lose weight without worrying about whether or not they can still produce enough high-quality breast milk to feed their newborn.
