Tips for Pregnant & Nursing Moms
Fruit-Eze™ Regularity Blend has helped Pregnant & Nursing Moms to avoid constipation to and achieve regularity. Pregnant and Nursing Mothers can follow either of these:
5 Tips for Pregnant & Nursing Mothers:
- 1. Split the Servings
Servings may be taken as one tablespoon in the morning and one in the afternoon or evening (twice per day). Like any food, chew your servings of Fruit-Eze. Fruit-Eze™ fruit blend may be eaten by itself, or on toast, in oatmeal, applesauce, etc. > Serving Ideas
- 2. Toilet Daily
To maintain colon function, toilet everyday about 45 minutes after each meal even if there is no urge to move the bowel or no actual bowel movement occurs. Sit on the toilet for about 5-10 minutes. Relax, do not strain. If no BM occurs, you can try again after a while. You can also try this tip for stimulating bowel activity: sip a cup of plain hot water, take a 5 minute walk, then try toileting again.
- 3. Observe Changes & Adjust Servings
Monitor changes in stool quality. And, remember the two basic recommendations:
If stool is too hard or too infrequent, take a little more Fruit-Eze™ .
If stool is too soft or too frequent, use a little less Fruit-Eze™.
Note: Bowel activity is unique. For some individuals, stools may become too firm if they take too much Fruit-Eze™ fruit blend. If this occurs, experiment by decreasing the serving by one tablespoon until a maintenance portion of one tablespoon per day is achieved.
- 4. Take Daily Servings Consistently
Consistency is the key. Remember to take the servings of Fruit-Eze™ Regularity Blend every day. For some mothers, daily bowel movements may occur. However, it is considered normal to experience 3 or more stools per week. Postpartum (depending on individual bowel health and whether you have already been taking Fruit-Eze Regularity Blend everyday), it may take from 2 weeks to several months to retrain the bowel. Adjust the servings as needed as your body recovers. Achieving the maintenance level of one tablespoon per day will have the bowel moving once every day or two on the average.
- 5. Daily Exercise & Rest
A few minutes of daily exercise such as walking or stretching helps to stimulate bowel activity (wear shoes with good foot support). Get plenty of rest (take naps if necessary). Exercise and rest helps to maintain overall health.
