You usually do not have to follow any sort of special diet while breastfeeding. Sometimes if you notice certain foods are bothering your baby after you eat them, then you will want to avoid those foods. Exclusively breastfed babies can not become constipated, but they often go for a longer period of time without going poo. Colic is typically separate than food sensitivities, but sometimes a milk protein allergy and colic can seem like the same thing.

"In the United States we sometimes forget about nursing moms in other cultures. Indian moms who are nursing continue to enjoy their curries. Moms from Mexico will still eat their spicy dishes that are full of flavor. But we feel that while nursing we must adhere to a bland diet, and this is just not the case for most nursing moms. " Most babies are not effected by what mom eats. Every culture has lists of foods that are "good" and "bad" for breastfeeding mothers. It happens very often that foods believed to be good in one culture are considered bad in others! Some great info on this at My baby is gassy. Is this caused by something in my diet?
