March 9, 2007, Newsletter Issue #120: Look After Yourself

Tip of the Week

This always seems to be redundant advice, but it is important and bears repeating. Try to rest and eat. When you're worried about your sick baby you may not feel like eating or be unable to sleep for more than an hour or two at a time. Inadequate rest and nutrition may interfere with your milk supply. Don't expect perfection. Sleep as much as possible and try to eat at least two small meals a day. On the ward it will be possible to keep a snack or nutritious drink nearby. In ICU you may be able to keep at least a cup of water handy. It depends on ICU policy and also the nurse on duty, but it's worth asking.
