Re: Food NO NOs?

As other posters have said it depends on the baby. Cow's milk is a no no for me although I can get away with cheese but no ice cream or chocolate for me otherwise he breaks out and it upsets his tummy. My husband has a chocolate cake in the fridge that Im drooling over right now

Re: Food NO NOs?

Yeah... tell her she's making her life miserable for no reason!

There is actually a study that shows that babies nurse more when mother has eaten a lot of garlic and her milk has a garlic flavor (I can just imagine baby thinking "yummm.... Italian this time").

The number one culprit is dairy. Beans actually aren't shown to make babies gassy (that is a wives' tale).

I've never noticed any response to my diet in my kiddoes. And I've eaten some crazy spicy stuff. (Although both of my kids can tolerate REALLY spicy foods... so maybe my spicy milk broke them in, lol!)

Re: Food NO NOs?

Like everyone has said, it's highly dependent on the baby in question, but having to restrict a large variety of foods is pretty uncommon. All of mine have reacted to onions, dd was sensitive to caffiene, ds was sensitive to chocolate (now that sucked! ), but really, I've never had to go on any type of super restrictive diet with any of them.

Re: Food NO NOs?

I've never restricted my diet unless there is a reason to (I had to cut pasteurized dairy w/ my second).

Re: Food NO NOs?

I had no problems with either of my DD's other than my oldest had issues with pineapple. Now with DS I am having serious dairy issues. The nutritionist at WIC recommended lactose free, but since I don't drink milk guess that won't help much.

Re: Food NO NOs?

My DD can handle anything. Garlic, curry, beans, soy, nuts, broccoli, onion... It's fine to eat whatever you want and stop only if you notice that your LO gets colicky within 6 hours of you eating something acidic, gassy, or strongly flavored.

We eat lots of Thai and Indian food at our house, we joke a lot that we'll probably need to mix curry and chili peppers into her baby food for her to eat it!

Re: Food NO NOs?

With my DS, I didn't notice anything except when I drank beer--he'd nurse SO much!!

My dd is very sensitive and has several food allergies so I have to restrict for her.

Like the PPs have said, it depends on Mom & baby. Some people subscribe to the "leaky gut" theory which indicates that if Mom has a "leaky gut", baby is more likely to have issues with mom's foods. If mom has a healthy gut, she should digest the foods properly and baby shouldn't have any problems. (I hope that I got that right)
