如何做個母乳富媽媽?
母乳量是否足夠是困擾新手媽媽的頭號問題,「婦人乳汁,氣血所化」,中醫理論認為母乳由氣血而化生,氣血充盈,自然能上奶。要注意不要犯下三大忌!

✗喝水量不足
水份攝取量不足,也會影響乳汁分泌。坐月期間產婦都會喝炒米水健脾暖胃,如出現熱氣症狀如喉嚨痛、便秘、出口瘡等,可以喝沒有炒過的米水,取其健脾胃的功效。另外還要多喝湯水補充水分呢!

✗飲食太過滋補
產後消耗大量氣血,體質多虛多瘀,要根據體質作適量調補。若胡亂過度進補,每一餐都是骨頭湯、滴雞精、花膠等反而會令母乳變濃稠而導致乳腺堵塞,母乳不通。

✗休息不足
初為人母每兩至三小時餵奶一次,睡眠嚴重不足還要戰戰兢兢地重新適應初生嬰兒的一切,加上還要打理家裡瑣碎事務,精神及生活壓力爆燈而令奶量下跌!心情欠佳,母乳也會受影響,愈來愈少,陷入無限輪迴,所以對母乳媽媽來說最重要就是補眠以及保持好心情!

在中醫理論中,奶水不足屬於缺乳範疇,排除以上三個原因,如果母乳量仍不足,就可能是因為氣血兩虛,可以於米水裡加入紅棗及北芪,也建議擦擦腰部舒緩症狀。

.氣血虛弱要擦腰.
症狀:乳房柔軟,母乳清稀量少。
位置:擦腰——雙手掌互相搓動至微微發熱,以掌心緊貼腰部脊椎兩旁,直綫往返摩擦腰部兩側。以腰背部微微發熱為準。
功效:行氣活血、壯腰益腎。

How to have a good breast milk supply?
Breast milk supply is usually one of the top concerns for now moms. Chinese medicine believes breast milk production originates from qi and blood so it is important to ensure you have sufficient of both. Do not commit the below three mistakes!

Not drinking enough water
When you don’t drink enough, it will affect breast milk production. During the confinement, you should have fried rice water to strengthen the spleen and warm the stomach. If you experience sore throat, constipation or canker sores, then have rice water that has not been fried to continue to strengthen the spleen. Remember to have enough soup as well to ensure sufficient fluid intake.

Have tonic meals
Delivery of a baby uses a lot of qi and blood, most body become asthenic. You have to make meals based on the body constitution and if every meal includes bone soup, chicken essence or fish maw etc, you may increase chance of breast duct clog as the milk may thicken.

Not resting enough
New moms need to feed every 2-3 hours. The sleep deprivation coupled with adjustment to caring for newborn and taking care of the home can lead be too stressful which can affect milk supply as well. Your mood can affect your milk supply and it becomes a vicious cycle. New moms need to sleep enough and not stress too much to ensure a good milk supply.

If you have ruled out the above three causes and still experience supply issues, then it may be due to asthenic qi and blood. Try adding Chinese red dates or radix astragali to your rice water. You can also try massaing your lower back.
