While I was pregnant someone told me that the baby would tolerate all of the foods I ate while I he was inutero.
Now that he is here, I am pretty sure that this ‘fact’ is wrong because I haven’t changed my diet one bit and Mr. Baby is NOT happy with me…
After a bit of a search I have realized that everything I eat is on the ‘do not eat while breast feeding’ list
Here is what I found:
- spices (cinnamon, garlic, curry, chili pepper)
- citrus fruits and their juices, like oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit
- the gassy veggies (onion, cabbage, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, and peppers)
- fruits with a laxative effect, such as cherries and prunes.
Apparently a daily cup or two of coffee is fine, but too much caffeine can interfere with your baby’s sleep or make him fussy.
