Spotlight: Hydrobump for all your breastfeeding hydration needs

The importance of staying hydrated when breastfeeding can definitely be overseen when you’re a new mum and now suddenly have a little human actually relying on you. However, it is so important that you look after yourself so you can be the best (and healthiest) version of yourself for them. 

Breast milk is 87% water - which is why staying hydrated is crucial for breastfeeding mums, not only to ensure they are replacing lost fluids but to ensure steady milk production. 

We know there are so many brands and products on the market (and it can be quite daunting!) so we’ve done a bit of research to point you in the right direction. 

We are so excited to collaborate with an Australian owned and Australian name brand, Hydrobump - to elevate your breastfeeding experience. With the knowledge of accredited doctors and pharmacists, they have developed a hydration powder curated for the needs of pregnant and postpartum women. Their powders don’t just taste good, but have been carefully formulated to take into consideration the Australian Nutrient Reference Values for the recommended daily hydration and nutrient intake of pregnant and breastfeeding women. 

The best thing about these hydration boosters is they don’t just give you the things you need but also take out the things you don’t. So, you’ll be happy to know that the amazing Watermelon and Sour apple flavours are all vegan and cruelty free, gluten free and low in sugar!

Advantages of using Hydrobump while pumping: 

  • Enhanced Milk Production: The maintenance of a healthy milk supply is contingent upon proper hydration. By supplying mums with the fluids they need to make milk efficiently, Hydrobump supports both the quantity and quality of milk production. 
  • Increased Energy Levels: The requirements of motherhood can be exhausting. With the use of Hydrobump's hydration products, mums may feel more energised and replace lost electrolytes throughout the day. 
  • Improved Health: Hydration aids digestion and circulation. Hydrobump’s hydration powders help mothers and newborns stay healthy. 

If you’re struggling with keeping up your milk supply it may be that you just aren’t getting enough liquid to keep up with the supply and demand cycle. With a  mother's 45-50% blood volume increase during pregnancy, hydration is essential for breastfeeding. When blood volume increases the requirement for fluids does too. 

Pairing Hydrobump hydration boosters with a wearable breast pump that allows you to still be on the go to fit in extra pump sessions throughout the day will do wonders to build up and maintain your milk supply! 

So, whether you’re in the midst of pregnancy or beginning your breast pumping journey, remember keeping hydrated is essential for feeling your best.
