Mother Baby Nutrition Supplement


A mother's nutrition and exercise during pregnancy influence the long-term health of the baby by shaping her baby's metabolism. "Metabolism" includes everything that allows your body to turn food into energy - from the organ systems that process food and waste to the energy-producing chemical reactions that take place inside every cell. It is the collective engine that keeps you alive.

Nature’s complete food, a product called Seven Essentials, contains the proper nutrients and minerals to feed the mother and baby any nourishment lacking in our current food supply. Over-planting and over-usage of the soil have depleted the soil and subsequently the nutrients that were once enough to sustain good health.


Seven Essentials is sold in a large container of 660 milligrams. Almost half is a soluble Rice Bran product called Risotriene. This fabulous product has hundreds of vitamins and minerals that you can read about by linking here.

The other 6 ingredients of Seven Essentials are: Fiber, Natural Protein, Essential Fatty Acids, Probiotics (good bacteria that fights the bad bacteria in our bodies), Enzymes, and Deep Sea Minerals.

A mother's body may influence her baby's metabolism on many levels: the way organs develop, how appetite signals get released in the brain, how genes are activated, even the metabolic chemistry inside the baby's cells. Research now shows that the environment of the womb helps determine how a baby's metabolism is put together, or "programs" it for later health. The science of fetal programming is still new; it will be a long time before we have all the answers, since these health effects emerge over a lifetime. But, several principles already are clear for a pregnant woman; and that is nutrition that will put the mother and baby on the road to good health.

The Basics

Increase your water consumption by one quart per day,

so that you are drinking a total of 2.5 to 3 quarts. Nursing women tend to be thirstier anyway, especially during feeding sessions, because part of their water consumption goes directly to milk production. But don't overdo it: too much liquid also can reduce milk production.

Increase your daily caloric intake to 2,500 calories:

you can even eat more if you are planning to continue breast-feeding for more than three months (2,800 calories per day). But again, be careful: many nursing mothers are tempted by sweets. Stick to healthy foods instead! Eat more proteins. The basic rule is to eat I gram of protein each day for every pound you weigh.

Spread your caloric intake over five "meals,

" breakfast, lunch, after- noon snack, dinner, and an extra snack during the evening. Each snack time is also an opportunity to drink water, eat a low-fat dairy product, and a piece of fruit. As your body is continually producing milk, it needs your caloric intake to be regular.

Stay away from tobacco.

Nicotine passes directly through breast milk to the baby. if you cannot control yourself, build in a gap of at least an hour between your last cigarette and your next feeding session, so that the nicotine in your system has a chance to decompose at least partially.

Avoid regular consumption of alcohol.

Alcohol passes through milk in less than an hour and if the baby consumes it in large quantities it can retard his growth. if you drink an occasional glass of wine or beer, save it for after a feeding session.

Take no medication without first consulting a doctor.

Most antibiotics, sulfa drugs, chemical laxatives, and all products containing iodine are contraindicated while you are breast-feeding. Other medications, taken over a long period, can also be dangerous.

Beware of pollutants.

Like nicotine, pesticide residue easily passes through mother's milk. If you are nursing, stay away from insecticides (especially in airborne forms such as aerosols or coils). Try to use natural insect repellents such as citronella. Eat primarily unsaturated fats. Sunflower, corn, rapeseed, and olive oil provide fatty acids that are essential for building the baby's nervous system.

Eat food containing vitamin B 9. In Western countries,

the only vitamin really lacking in women's diets is vitamin B 9 (folic acid). Birth control pills accentuate a woman's vitamin B 9 deficit, and may also contribute to a vitamin B 6 deficiency. During pregnancy, folic acid is vital to the development of the baby's nervous system. Nursing mothers are well advised to continue taking their prenatal vitamins. Folic acid also can be found abundantly in asparagus, cabbage, corn, chick- peas, and spinach. Many other foods, such as wheat and orange juice, have been enriched with folic acid. Check the package labels.

After you give birth to your baby you are faced with the challenge and exciting adventure of choosing the best food for him. Breast milk or formula are the most recommended foods in the first year of your baby life. Baby feeding is very easy and only becomes a bit complex when the baby starts to feed on solids.

What is important in the early days is good nutrition and development. This is the time to develop good and healthy eating habits. When you feed the little one you want to make sure that he gets all the necessary nutrients in his diet. The information provided below will help you make the best decisions on how and when to feed a little one from birth until he becomes a toddler.

During the first six months breast milk is the best, because it has got all the nutrients that the baby needs. The infant can digest the breast milk easily so that he does not suffer from complications like constipation and diarrhea. In addition to that it has been known to help in strengthening the immune system and has got some antibodies that help the baby combat a lot of potential diseases and illnesses. Some experts suggest that if the little one is feeding exclusively on breast milk you must also give him daily supplements of vitamin D; the choice is entirely up to you.

Some may choose not to breast feed and use formula. Before you start using formula you must make sure that it contains iron and all the necessary nutrients. The formula must not cause constipation or diahorrea, if this happens then you should stop immediately and consult your pediatrician who might be able to suggest another type of formula. The good thing about infant formulas is that there is quite a range that you can choose from.

After the first six months you might want to consider introduction of solids. You can choose to feed him with home cooked foods like soups, vegetables, mashed potatoes or butternut, cheese, eggs and mashed fruit just to mention a few. The choice is entirely yours. These solids can be taken whilst the baby is still feeding on either breast milk or formula.
Feeding does not require any skill, anyone can do it. In order to avoid unnecessary expenses, it is always good to feed the little one with what you can afford. You can give him home made food and vegetables from your own garden. The little tummies do not demand much, all they need is a well balanced diet.

When preparing the babys food always make sure that all his bottles and other utensils are sterilized, washing alone is not enough. You can microwave or just steam the food as compared to boiling so that you do not take away the rich nutrients by boiling.

Remember that you must always avoid small pieces like nuts for example as they can be dangerous to babies, they can get choked. Give the food time to cool a bit before you can serve. Make sure you wash you hands before you prepare or serve babys food.

In any case it is important to note that parents can determine the kind of food that they want to feed their baby with. However it is important to know the type of food against the stage of development or the age. Although you can continue to feed the baby with milk up to two years, from one year they can eat and enjoy most meals and foods that the whole family is having.
