What kind of food should a breastfeeding mom eat more while breastfeed her g6pd baby?

Vitamin E and Folic : Food high in vitamin e and Folic Acid help decrease red blood cell breakdown in g6pd. Definitely avoid fava beans since they are a known cause of red blood cell breakdown in the blood. Mom could be careful to chose for herself milk formulas which have no traces of soy or soya beans since soy and red wine, and blueberries could trigger g6pd. ...Read more

If im breastfeeding what food I have to avoid so my baby wont get colics?

Colic: There are no particular foods that cause colic. If there were foods that gave you trouble during pregnancy- acidic foods, caffeine, spicy foods- you may want to avoid them in the first few months after the baby is born. If you eat a particular food and notice the baby is very fussy, you may want to avoid that one for a while until she is a bit older. Eat healthy foods and see how it goes. ...Read more

Advice,  what's good food/intake for breastfeeding. What's not good. (colic baby with food allergies)?

Unsettled: These issues are still unsettled. More evidence is pointing to no food avoidance even during pregnancy since lack of exposure to a specific food within the first 4 months of life appears to raise the risk to develop allergy . If baby is allergic, you will need to avoid that food if possible although it is unknown as to how much food does get into breast milk. Agree that probiotic may help. ...Read more

Im a breastfeeding mom, what medicine should I take to avoid vomiting and nausea during travel?

Depends on severity: If your motion sickness isn't too severe, then try ginger candy (or ginger capsules if you can't stand the taste of ginger!). This works well for some, especially if the symptoms are mild. If you have pretty severe motion sickness, then my medication of choice is zofran (ondansetron). It is fairly non sedating, unlike other over the counter and prescription meds. It can be prescribed by your doctor. ...Read more

Can baby get sick if breastfeeding and there is a skin infection in mom?

Can baby get sick if breastfeeding and there is a skin infection in mom?

It depends: There are so many skin infections it is hard to make a blanket statement that covers every variation. It would depend on what the infection is from, how bad is it, where exactly on the breast is the infection, is the infection partly treated and no longer contagious because it is partly treated but the mom is not yet fully recovered. Best bet is to get the opinion of a breatfeeding friendly dr. ...Read more

Im a breastfeeding mom to my 6wks baby.Is it ok if i take vit.E/alpha tocopherol while breastfeeding.I use to take it when im not yet pregnant?

See below: Scientists recommend that pregnant or lactating women be held to lower dietary intake levels of Alpha tocopherol and vitamin e substances. One reason is because high dosages of some of these tocopherol elements have been linked to birth defects. The rda for pregnant women of any age, it is 15 milligrams (or 22.5 iu); for breastfeeding women of any age, it is 19 milligrams (or 28.5 iu). ...Read more

I'm a breastfeeding mom. When I look down at nursing baby I feel a sharp pain in neck that shots up the back of my head. What ciukd cause this?

Irritated nerve?: If there is pain, tingling, numbness, or electrical sensations felt when a person moves her head or neck in a particular direction, she may be irritating or compressing a nerve coming out of the spinal cord. A neurologist or a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehabilitation) doctor can figure out the problem and start therapy. Sometimes neck x-rays and / or MRI are needed. ...Read more

I'm a new mom of a 2 month old and I'm also breastfeeding the baby. My right boob is very painful and tender to the touch. Even after I feed her. ?

1st congratulations: You could just have an engorged breast. You could have a block in the canals which lead the milk to your nipple. That can be treated with a warm compress. A more serious cause could be that you have a mastitis (a breast infection). You should be seen by your doc for that and take an antibiotic if that is the reason. ...Read more

Some thoughts...: Pregnancy is the most common cause of a missed period. If not pregnant, other causes of a late or missed period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (especially birth control pills), hormonal disorders, etc… A home urine pregnancy test is very accurate 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more
