Like mother, like baby

Staying hydrated during pregnancy and breastfeeding is important. It is recommended that pregnant women should increase their total water intake by an extra 300ml/day during  pregnancy and 700ml/day during breastfeeding, over and above the 2000ml/day of total water intake recommended by EFSA.* 

Why is drinking water regularly important during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding, water plays a vital role:

  • On average, it makes up 60% of your body, and is mostly renewed every 6 weeks, primarily through the water you drink. 
  • This water contributes to the formation and renewal of the amniotic fluid that encircles your baby for the first nine months of life, which is made of 90% water. 
  • At 25 weeks, the foetus itself is nearly 90% water. 
  • For the first several months after birth, babies’ key source of nutrition is through breast milk, which is comprised of 87% water. 

What’s more, as your new born baby’s body is 75% water, it is ever so important for you to stay hydrated when breastfeeding to accompany your baby’s development.
