breastfeeding and peanuts?

I am breastfeeding my nine month old daughter, and have been eating alot of peanuts lately. The past few nights she has been extremely fussy at bedtime and naptime. She cries as if she's in pain, this cry is definitely different from her normal cry. I took her to the doctor today, and she is healthy and fine. Of course only after the appointment did I remembered that ive been eating more nuts than usual, can these upset her tummy, or make her constipated??

Thanks in advance!!

  • could be a peanut alergy, stop eating them and see if it gets better.

  • Yes, peanuts have a way of making most babies more fussy than usual. I also heard or read somewhere that you are not supposed to be eating any peanuts while breastfeeding, Something in the peanuts will make your baby more prone to being allergic when your baby gets older. Babies I guess are not allowed to have any peanuts until they are at least one year old.(including in your breastmilk). That's what I read though, you could just go onto or another website if you like to get more info. :)
