With picnics, BBQs, beach parties and outdoor fiestas, summer is the perfect time to have platters of fresh veggies and big leafy salads. Top them with this simple vinaigrette to add the perfect balance of tanginess and crunch, with added breastfeeding support.
This dressing takes just minutes to whip up but the taste completely transforms any side or salad. Add to veggies or greens: succulent sweet corn nibs, lightly steamed broccoli florets, kale and avocado salads, garden salads, etc.
As simple as it is, this vinaigrette not only tastes delicious but also supports breastfeeding. It includes Munch Crunch, our lactation sprinkle, which offers lactation and digestive support. The mix features flax, fennel, and sesame seeds and the superherb turmeric.
I often get messages from my exhausted new-mom patients asking what they can do about their flagging energy. Usually they’re at the four to six-month postpartum mark and wondering why they’re still so tired. The baby is starting to sleep more, they’re exercising again, they eat well but they can’t dig their way out of feeling totally depleted.
As a parent, you may be asking yourself: will I ever sleep again? Pediatric sleep is a complicated topic; it can also be confusing and overwhelming to navigate parenthood with extreme levels of exhaustion. Do not suffer in silence and know that lack of sleep does not need to become your new norm.
The birth of your baby is an exciting time. However, when it comes to breastfeeding this can pose challenging for many moms. Although breastfeeding is natural, it does not necessarily come naturally and that’s OK! Early and regular stimulation to the breast is KEY in the first few days.
