Default Food advice....

Hi ladies!

I am pregnant with my first and due in 5 weeks. I am planning on breastfeeding and am looking for some advice on what I should eat and shouldn't eat. I am normally a pretty healthy eater so that won't be difficult but I've been reading that healthy foods, such as broccoli will make a baby gassy. Can you please list things that didn't agree with your baby while breastfeeding and also things that will help breastfeeding? Thanks!

The lactation consultant who did my bf class said anything is fine within reason, and you shouldn't cut out anything you would normally eat unless the baby starts to show discomfort. I think it all depends on your particular baby

All babies are different. My friends baby reacted to apples. I was lucky that Rhiannon didn't have a reaction to anything. In the beginning I was careful to not have too many onions or peppers as I had heard that those made babies gassy too.
I've been told oatmeal helps increase your milk supply. Cookies, bread, cereal, however you eat it! I used it once and felt it did help somewhat. Good luck!

Just drink lots of water and liquids in addition to your regular diet unless your baby is colicy. If your baby is super gassy/colicy, you may have to start eliminating some foods from your diet. Just go over that bridge if and when you come to it!!

It really does depend on the baby. You should stick to your healthy diet and eat a variety of foods. Only eat certain things in moderation if baby reacts negatively to it. My Avery had (sometimes still does) reflux and gas and I did not stay away from healthy veggies because of it, just modified it a bit.
Good luck to you, and congrats on your pregnancy.
