  • Everything that you normally would...but avoid things that are spicy, cause they might upset babies tummy.

  • Just pay attention to how the baby reacts to certain foods. Some babies are really picky, then there are mine who just care about being fed.

  • you want to know what you can or can't eat? You can eat almost anything but I would stay away from cabbage since it can dry up your milk. There are other foods that will too but I don't remember what they are.

    I know while nursing I couldn't eat ice cream because it gave my daughter colic.

  • Disregard any answers telling you to avoid anything in particular - absolute nonsense.

    Eat what you like - breast milk is very forgiving, and it will be perfect for your baby whether you eat salad all day, or McDonalds.

    For your own sake though, as with anyone else - you should try to amintain a healthy diet so as to be the most energetic and healthy mother you can be.

  • i was going to tell you the same thing ladysavage did.
    eat what ever it is you want yes some things like onion and spicy foods can cause a gassy baby but its not to likely. try and atleast maintain a healthy diet none the less for your sake and babies.
