Off limit foods

Are there any foods that I should stay away from while breastfeeding? I know while pregnant fish was a no go.

nope, unless you think your baby is having a reaction to something.

Every baby is different.


The general things I was told in my early nursing days were gassy foods ( broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage ect) chocolate, anything spicy.
None of this held true for me.

What I have found with number 3&4 was that they are sensitive to dairy soy and nuts.

I wouldn't worry about it unless you have a fussy baby.
My first two had what I thought was colic and could not be put down cat napped 10 minutes at a time. I think that was allergy related.

If you have an issue then start eliminating things. other than that eat drink and enjoy

Agreed. My dd2 never showed any signs that anything bothered her so I had it all. Dairy, fruits, veggies...

Dairy and soy seem to be a problem for my kids.

Re: Off limit foods

I find that it's not so much what I eat, it's how much. For example, that entire watermelon I ate over the course of two days...not good for LO's tummy. But in general most babies will be fine with any food in moderation.

Re: Off limit foods

I agree with pp. You only need to avoid foods if your lo is reacting to something you are eating. My first 2 children reacted to nothing. My youngest reacts to all forms of dairy.
