Does Pregnacare breastfeeding increase breast milk for Kenyan mothers?
Yes it does.
One way to increase your breastmilk production is to eat healthy foods rich in proteins plus taking lots of drinks throughout the day. Some great foods for breastfeeding in Kenya that we have been able to look at include njahi(black peas), mrenda, saga, mito and fermented porridge.
You also need to keep healthy, stay away from stress or anything that would distract you from producing milk for your baby.
Even after checking off these things, some Kenyan women might still find that they are not producing enough milk to exclusively breastfeed their babies. Well, here is where we recommend that you take breastfeeding supplements to increase your milk production.
One supplement that we usually stock at our outpatient facility in Eldoret is pregnacare breastfeeding supplement. While the supplement is recommended for pregnant mothers, it can still be taken even after birth when you are breastfeeding your baby.
