Breast milk is best for your baby.

Health Canada, the Canadian Paediatric Society, and the Dietitians of Canada recommend that you exclusively breastfeed your baby for the first 6 months and that you continue to breastfeed for up to 2 years or longer along with complementary foods.

Morning sickness remedies

Morning sickness is one of pregnancy’s most highly publicized downers. While not everybody suffers from symptoms of nausea and vomiting, when they hit, they can be a challenge.

But the good news is, the right nutrition during pregnancy can help manage these symptoms.

Why? Well, morning sickness is caused by elevated levels of hormones in the body (your metabolism is, after all, adjusting to having a passenger on board who wants a share of things).

So why not try the following tips for morning sickness relief?

Eating small meals or snacks frequently throughout the day rather than three whopping meals is a good start, as is avoiding greasy, spicy, or fried foods. Staying hydrated is a must, and if you happen to crave something healthy (lucky you), go for it!

You might also notice that smells seem more pungent, so avoid odors that don’t agree with you. And finally, there’s nothing like getting enough sleep to help with queasiness. Try these tips and you will be giving yourself the best possible chance of avoiding the worst of morning sickness.
