So what in your diet disagrees w/baby?

So far my baby has gotten very fussy and uncomfortable after me eating onions, and brats. How about you ladies? just wondering if there are some coomon ones.

Tomato products, especially marinara sauce, onions, broccoli, cincinnati style chili...I know there is more, but I can't really think of it.

I've found I can get away with some of it if I eat small amounts. BFing is actually making me eat really well

Onions & Broccoli here too!! For me it seems to be all "the cabbage family ." I love bfing so I am willing to give up my favs. It would be nice to have both of my loves. I have found that a product by Wellements called Gripe Water for Colic, helps my dd tremendously when I goof up & have something I didn't realize would upset her. It is all natural & organic. I have tried a bunch of the natural aids & this works the best.

Wow. I have never had trouble with anything that I've eaten. I've read so many studies that said to watch out for broccoli and cabbage... so I was careful, and watched him when I ate them, but nothing seemed to bother my son. I guess I'm really blessed!

When DS was a newborn the worst ones were peas and tofu. I gave up most veggies until he was maybe 8 months and then started eating small amounts. One time I ate a whole bunch of really spicy Indian food and he got the worst diaper rash I have ever seen, poor guy didn't sit for a day and a half. I felt sooooo bad!!

My DD was a very colicy baby. I found that she got worse when I ate beans, so I cut them out completely and so did with other typically gassy foods (cabagge and the sort). But she suffered with it anyway until she outgrew it.

I learned too late that there are other things that could upset a baby. I though some babies were just colicy :-( I'll be more careful next time :-(

My two youngest have milk protein allergies, so when I eat dairy my 1y.o. gets stinky gas. Other than that, she can handle anything-- even coffee!

Lentils is the only thing that has caused major fussiness. I think coffee makes him spit up a little more.

cabbage and caffeine are out for me.....I am trying to work up to a real cup of tea every now and then - caffeine free just isn't the same...

yes, we use that too, and it helps upset tummies or gassiness, etc.
