Water. We can’t live without it. But let’s be honest, do y’all drink enough of it everyday? I know I don’t. If you’re breastfeeding, it’s extremely important to drink plenty of water. I’m definitely working on this!
According to ASK Dr. Sears, for a breastfeeding mother you should be drinking 8 ounces of water everytime you feed your baby. So if your baby eats 8 times a day than you should be getting 64 ounces.
So this is my goal. Everytime I feed Holden I will drink an 8 ounce glass of water. This seems doable.
So we all know that drinking water helps boost milk production but what other benefits can I expect from upping my water intake?
- Balance of my body’s fluids
- Control my calories
- Energize my muscles
- Keep my skin clear
- Flush my kidneys
- Help in the bathroom (with #2’s!)
- Relieve my fatigue
- Improve my mood
- Treat my headaches
- Help me lose weight
- Flush out my toxins
- Regulate my body temperature
- Controls bad breath (don’t deny, we all have morning breath! 😉)
- Increase my productivity by keeping my mind sharp
- Help prevent pain
- Help fight illness
I have no idea why I slack so much on drinking water but I’m going to up my game! Who’s with me?
