Can I eat raw eggs when breastfeeding?

Can I eat raw eggs when breastfeeding?

Yes, but risky: Eating raw eggs is often associated with contracting intestinal infections, such as salmonella. Salmonella can make you very ill. If you contract it, transfer to your baby, through handling, would be likely. It can be deadly to a baby or elderly person. Sounds too risky, if you ask me. Read more

1 year old pooping 5x a day, paste-like. Not fussy. Normal? Getting rash after poops. Breastfeeding. Only change has been more dairy, eggs in my diet.

Can be: Breast fed kids can go every feed or once a week. A bottom rash is common & may or may not be related. Some kids do react to bovine products in their mom's diet, so a week off all dairy could help you decide if it's an issue. Same with the egg. Read more

I am breastfeeding a 7 months old baby with lots of food allergies e.g. egg, milk, wheat and corn. How long do these allergens stay in my breast milk?

I am breastfeeding a 7 months old baby with lots of food allergies e.g. egg, milk, wheat and corn. How long do these allergens stay in my breast milk?

Breast milk: Many pediatricians and pediatiric clinics assign the diagnosis of "foor allergies" as a cause of "colic" or poor feeding by an infant. It is possible that no "true allergies" have occurred, and if your infant is thriving (putting on predicted weight) it is unlikely that your breast milk is creating a problem. Ask a pediatric dermatologist for advice if your infant is not growing appropriately. Read more

Exactly how much should I eat while breastfeeding and exercising?

Follow your weight.: No one can tell you. Your own brain and body will tell you. Eat protein 3 times a day and avoid processed foods, flour and sugar. As long as your milk is plentiful and you are not gaining weight you are doing well. You may even lose weight slowly without problems, 1-2 pounds per week. But stable weight is possible even as you convert fat into muscle into fat. Eat lots of leafy and green vegetables. Read more

Is it ok to eat spicy foods while breastfeeding?

Is it ok to eat spicy foods while breastfeeding?

Sure: Mothers in all cultures eat the food native to their countries. I don't think those in mexico, greece, or thailand are eliminating anything from their diet. We know what a mom eats during breastfeeding flavors her milk to help the baby become accustomed to their native food. Some children can be fussy after certain foods, but mom's diet is blamed too much for a baby's fussiness. Read more
