I believe we all know that there are many things to pay attention to, especially in terms of diet. So what should we pay attention to in the diet of confinement? Let's follow Xiaobian to learn more about it. First, it's not suitable to make a big supplement in the first and second weeks after delivery
The main goal of postpartum first and second weeks is to 'promote diuresis and detumescence', so that lochia can be discharged completely, so it is absolutely not necessary to make a large supplement. The correct concept of tonic is: first discharge lochia, then replenish qi and blood, the more lochia, the more can not be replenished.
Therefore, in the first 1-2 weeks of confinement, diet should focus on promoting metabolism and expelling excessive water from the body.
Week 1: you can eat pork liver with sesame oil or pork liver (suitable for eating in the morning and noon), Chinese yam spareribs soup, red dates and tremella soup to help the uterus discharge lochia and other wastes; you can drink some light soups such as egg soup and fish soup; you can also eat some light meat food, such as meat slices and minced meat. Lean beef, chicken, fish, etc. are fried together with fresh vegetables. The taste is fresh and nutritious. The right amount of orange, grapefruit, kiwi fruit and other fruits also have the effect of appetizer. The focus of this stage is to appetizer rather than nourish. If you have a good appetite, you will have good taste and absorption.
The second week: to sesame oil pig waist, peanut stewed pig feet, fish soup and other activation of blood circulation, prevent backache. In addition, add 2000-2500 ml of water every day.
In the third and fourth weeks, lochia will be clean and enter the tonic period. When cooking, rice wine should be added appropriately to promote blood circulation and help restore physical strength.
2、 You'd better drink less oil soup
Although it's good to drink soup during confinement, it's better to drink less oil soup, because more oil in the soup will increase the amount of fat in the milk, and the digestive function of the newborn is not complete. Too much fat in the milk may make your baby have diarrhea.
3、 Brown sugar should not be drunk for more than 10 days
Brown sugar contains a variety of trace elements and minerals, can diuresis, prevention and treatment of postpartum urinary incontinence, promote lochia excretion, brown sugar also has the effect of raw milk, pain relief.
But also do not eat too much, generally drinking can not exceed 10 days, too long to increase bloody lochia, and in the summer will make maternal sweating more and less salt in the body. Because brown sugar contains more glucose than white sugar, drinking brown sugar water will accelerate sweating, make the body more weak, even heatstroke.
4、 Parturient should pay attention to eating vegetables and fruits
Maternal gastrointestinal function is weak, should start to eat a small amount. Maternal gastrointestinal cold stimulation is very sensitive, do not eat too cold vegetables and fruits. If it is too cold, it is easy to cause gastrointestinal congestion and affect digestive function. Maternal gastrointestinal resistance is weak, we must pay attention to whether the food is clean and hygienic.
5、 Eat less salt and seasonings during confinement
Generally speaking, the weight gained during the whole process of pregnancy is about 12 kg, the weight of the baby and placenta is about 5.5 kg and 6.5 kg, of which water accounts for more than 60%. In other words, the water produced by various factors of pregnancy must be discharged slowly after the mother gives birth.
Therefore, if the food is too salty or contains condiments such as soy sauce, vinegar, tomato sauce, or pickled food, canned food, etc. during the confinement period, the water in the body will be retained and difficult to discharge. Therefore, postpartum a week to eat less salt and seasonings, can achieve the purpose of 'diuretic detumescence'.
On the other hand, women tend to sweat a lot during this period, and the supplement of electrolytes still needs salt. In addition, the appetite of pregnant women is very bad, and it is impossible to use salt at all. Therefore, salt can still be used during confinement, but it must be less than usual.
6、 Chicken soup, pig soup to the right amount
Many people think that there is a lot of bleeding during childbirth, so we should eat more chicken soup, pig's hoof soup and other nourishing soup. As everyone knows, if you eat every day, you will cause abdominal distension, diarrhea and other symptoms. Postpartum diet in the first week should be more light, such as egg soup, fish soup, etc. Fish soup is very nutritious, but first remove the upper layer of oil, soup do not salty. Postpartum 5-7 days should be rice porridge, soft rice, broken noodles and other staple food, do not eat too much greasy things.
7、 Don't drink ginseng soup too often
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, the trauma and bleeding during childbirth, together with the energy consumption in the process of labor, will make the puerpera in the state of "more deficiency and more stasis" after childbirth. But this generally does not need deliberate treatment, even if the treatment, must also be aimed at the characteristics, take the prescription of tonifying deficiency and removing stasis. The effect of ginseng is the strongest in traditional Chinese medicine, which can only be considered when the symptoms of qi deficiency are serious. If you drink too much, you may have chest distress, difficulty in falling asleep and other symptoms.
8、 You don't have to drink broth for a month
Generally, maternal 2 ~ 3 eggs a day, with appropriate lean meat, fish, vegetables and fruits is enough. If you have enough milk, you don't have to drink a lot of broth. If you don't have enough milk, you can drink some broth, but it doesn't have to last for a month. Intake of too much fat, not only the body shape is not easy to recover, but also can lead to diarrhea, this is because milk will also contain a large number of fat particles, the baby is difficult to absorb after eating.
