What causes hair fall and headaches during lactation?

default
Posted on Mon, 28 Jul 2014
Question: My wife is a lactating mother of our 14 month old daughter. She is currently suffering from heavy hair fall and headache and pain in her reast region sometimes. Her opinion is that our daughter has suddenly started to suck more and more milk from her and therefore she is feeling tiredness and dizziness. Our daughter has not started eating or drinking anything else other than mother milk. My question is whether my wife can take nutrilite brand cal mag d tablets and iron folic tablets of the same brand which she was taking during pregnancy to be strong and healthy ?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.
Yes! your wife can take these medicines for her better health.
There are some suggestion from my side to you-
1) She should start some solid and semisolid food to her baby. It is very important for her mental and physical development.
because only mother milk is not sufficient for her development at this age.
2) You can consult a paediatrician and take advice for her food habbit.
3) Apart from these medicines your wife should take extra milk and milk product, daliya and moong dal etc. to fulfil her body needs.
4) She should take healthy, high protein and carbohydrate diet at frequent interval.
I think I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.
Regards
Dr. Richa
