Good for Mum and Baby!
Babies only get DHA from their mums
The developing baby is completely dependent on its mother for DHA especially during the last trimester of pregnancy, because the brain and eyes are developing rapidly during this time. The baby’s need for enough DHA is so strong that he or she will deplete their mother’s DHA if the supply is low. This is why women need to consume enough DHA during pregnancy for both of them. In addition, eye development and vision are not completely developed by their birth, so feeding the baby healthy levels of DHA from breast milk or formula helps vision continue to develop. Healthy levels of DHA have also been shown to help improve moods in women before and after birth.
How much do you need?
Neither mom nor baby can make DHA in the body so it must be consumed through the diet or from supplements. Experts recommend getting at least 200 – 300 mg DHA per day, and some recommend up to 900 mg per day to cover the needs for both mother and child
