DHA is it found in breastmilk or do i have to...
Eat foods that contain DHA, like fish?
On the website Babycenter it says that if my diet does not contain DHA that my baby won't get any through my breastmilk. It says that if my diet does not contain a few servingsof cold water fish every week, or other foods that contain DHA I should look into taking supplements. It said that I should consume 12 onces of fish or seafood a week.
It was to my understanding before I read this article that breastmilk contains everything a baby would need, and that the nutritional aspect of my diet had little to do with what she would receive, that if anything she would get what she needed, and I would lack.
I want the best for my baby so that's why I'm breastfeeding, but like most people, my diet is far from perfect. I try to eat healthy and I try to do the best I can and choose foods that will benefit me and my baby. But this article has me really doubting my milk now.:(
