What foods should I avoid during the time that i will be breastfeeding? I've been told that alcohol, jalapenos, and onion are a danger to the baby?
Not dangerous!: "classic allergenic foods:" cow's milk; eggs; peanuts; tree nuts; wheat; soy; fish. Some breast-feeding women say that avoiding these items or other spicy/gassy foods, such as onions/cabbage, can help — but this hasn't been proved through research. If your baby becomes fussy or develops a rash, diarrhea or congestion soon after nursing, these signs could indicate a food allergy & need to avoid. ...Read more

What kind of food I should be eating during breastfeeding to give baby all vitamins and all he needs, and what should I not eat?
6-7 m old baby was good sleeper during breastfeeding, when I started solid foods when she was 5 month she started to wake up twice.
Digestive adjustment: Your baby's body is having to adjust to solid foods and this impacts the nervous system (which controls sleeping). The GI system is heavily connected to the central and autonomic nervous systems, and there are myriad interactions between GI and CNS/ANS. You're witnessing yet another miracle of nature as your baby's stomach and GI tract 'learns' to process solid food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: I recommend no dairy as it is excreted in breast milk and can be allergenic. Other foods generally recommended to avoid include nuts, corn, citrus, wheat, and egg white because they can also be allergenic. I also let moms know to simply pay attention to what you eat and how your baby responds. Affects from food on the baby can be seen within 3-24 hours after eating. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baby likely OK: If you had a poor diet while breastfeeding, it more likely took its toll on you than on the baby. If the appropriate nutrients are not present while you are producing milk, your body will steal these nutrients out of your body's tissues in order to feed the baby. For instance, it will pull calcium out of your bones to ensure enough calcium in the milk for the infant. You need to get yourself back ...Read more
I weaned my baby from breastfeeding. What will i give my weaned baby to make him eat food and be strong and healthy. Thanks?
Depend on baby's age: If your baby is younger than 12 months of age, i would recommend baby formula till 12 months. After that you can give homogenized milk, but limit the amount to no more than 24 oz a day. If you give more milk, chance of developing iron deficiency is very high. The baby also should eat jarred baby foods, increasing the volume gradually. Start with vegetables such squash, green beans, and liver, beef. ...Read more
