Default Foods to Avoid?

i got to thinking last night that maybe there are some foods i should avoid while nursing. besides the obvious, what should i look out for? i have been eating cereal in the mornings, but i started to think that maybe the milk was bad for her. sometimes, af i feed her, she will draw her legs up and squeal and i wonder if her stomach hurts her.

also, i am not a big chocolate person, but lately i seem to really crave it. then i read online that chocolate should be avoided.



 



thank you!

most of the time, unless the mother has many food allergies, the foods that she eats won’t cause problems to the baby but sometimes the baby can get symptoms from it like gas, diarrhea, rashes and other symptoms.
a common one is cow’s milk and milk products. Other foods that have been known to cause problems are eggs, wheat products, citrus fruits, caffeine, chocolate, spicy foods, garlic and cucumbers
one thing that seems to give my DS gas is Peanuts and Peanut butter.
It's really hard to figure out what one your eating that is causing a problem because it could take weeks for the foods to get out of your system if you stop eating or drinking them.

crap! half the foods you mentioned are on my daily eating list.

thank you for the heads up. i will keep a closer eye on it and at least try to limit those foods, if not give them up altogether.

what do you all think about de-caf soda? i drink water or juice when thirsty, but when i have a meal, it is hard for me to drink water with it. so, i have been toying the idea of decaf soda (like sprite) is that okay?
