Did you know…

that it’s perfectly normal for your baby to become distracted while feeding? Even hungry babies can lose interest. Try to find a peaceful place to feed and talk to your baby quietly, so that he concentrates on you rather than what is going on around him. If he starts to come off and on, take him off the breast and try again later. He’ll soon realize that feeding time is not playtime!

Teething babies

If your baby is latched on properly, she shouldn’t be able to gnaw or bite, but if she’s teething she may use your breasts for comfort. Remove her from your breast as soon as she’s finished feeding and try rubbing a cold, wet cloth on her gums, or offer her something else to chew on.

Breastfeeding to sleep

Many babies seek the breast when they are sleepy because it’s comforting and familiar. There is nothing wrong with breastfeeding a baby to sleep. You don’t want her to become dependent on you feeding her to fall asleep, though. Begin the transition to settling her without milk when you’re both ready.

Infused Waters

It is important to drink plenty of fluids. Many health spas serve infused waters, which are refreshing and a lot more interesting than plain water. Keep in the refrigerator and have some when you are thirsty.

5 minutes plus chilling

NOTE

6 Cups

  • 1 lime, thinly sliced

  • 3in piece cucumber, seeded, peeled, halved lengthwise, and finely sliced

  • 2 large sprigs of fresh mint

Citrus Refresher
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • 1 lime, thinly sliced

  • 1 orange, thinly sliced

  2. Cover and chill overnight. Stir before serving.

Chicken Quesadilla

Quesadillas are quick and tasty, perfect when you are hungry and tired, or want an end-of-the-day snack without any fuss.

5 minutes

4–5 minutes

NOTE

1 Adult

  • 2 flour tortillas

  • 2 tbsp salsa

  • 1/2 cup shredded cooked chicken breast

  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese

  • For serving

    • 1 tbsp sour cream (optional)

    • 2 tbsp guacamole or a few slices of avocado (optional)

  1. Place a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat to warm.

  2. Put one tortilla on a plate and spread the salsa over the top. Scatter the chicken and cheese evenly over the salsa and top with the second tortilla. Slide the quesadilla into the hot frying pan and lower the heat slightly. Cook until the underside is toasted, about 2 minutes, pressing the quesadilla down lightly with a slotted spatula.

  3. Using your hand to steady the top, carefully flip the quesadilla over with the spatula. Cook until the second side is toasted, 2–3 minutes, pressing down lightly. When the quesadilla is ready, the cheese will have melted and the chicken will be hot throughout. (If flipping the quesadilla makes you nervous, you can pop the frying pan under a preheated broiler to cook the top.)

  4. Slide the quesadilla onto a plate and let stand for 1–2 minutes, then cut in quarters. Serve hot, with sour cream and guacamole or with avocado slices, if desired.
