Why do women need lactation overnight oats?
lactation overnight oats are a magical way to help lactating moms get in their daily dose of iron, calcium and vitamin D. The oats and nuts work together to provide a good source of protein, which is important for growing babies.
Iron is essential for the production of haemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the body. Without enough iron, your body cannot produce enough haemoglobin and your baby will not be able to get enough oxygen through his or her blood supply. Calcium helps with the formation of bones and teeth in infants and toddlers, as well as helping to regulate muscle contractions. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption in adults and children alike.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s incredibly easy to make! If you don’t have time to cook overnight oats on the stove top or bake them in an oven, try this method: combine all ingredients except for the milk in a large mason jar or Tupperware container. Pour enough milk into the container so that all ingredients are covered by at least an inch or two of liquid (you may need more depending on how much liquid you’re using). Stir everything together well so that there are no clumps of dry ingredients left behind.
