Not only do pregnant women need more folic acid, breastfeeding women do too. The recommended dietary intake of folic acid for women who are breastfeeding is 500 mcg daily. This can be obtained through fortified foods, prenatal vitamins, or multivitamins. Since every woman's situation is different, however, talk to your healthcare provider about folic acid and breastfeeding in your particular situation. Make photos with your cute baby, upload to the App. Write what vitamins and mineral supplements you take, breastfeeding your little one.
