Meals of breastfeeding mother

Enough amount of milk in breastfeeding mothers provided her gentle attitude. Mother should: eat well, get enough sleep, daily walk in the fresh air, do not worry, and limit physical activity.

It must be remembered that the child each day deprives the body of mother of one liter of liquid.

It is useful to drink tea with milk and various milk products (e.g. yogurts).
It is also necessary to eat food that contains lots of iron: liver, apples. It
is necessary not to eat spicy foods, garlic, onions (they give breast milk
taste bad).

From the foods containing proteins, breastfeeding mothers are advised to eat boiled meat (poultry, low fat beef, pork, lamb, and rabbit), fish, and eggs. As animal fat should be used butter, cream, sour cream, and as a vegetable fat - sunflower oil, corn oil or olive oil.

Fruit and vegetable juices are best to drink only natural - no preservatives added, fresh: carrot, cucumber, beet, cabbage, tomato, apple, watermelon, melon, pomegranate, etc. Citrus juices are not recommended.

Breastfeeding mothers should be cautious to eat grapes, plums, apricots, figs - the child may have diarrhea, abdominal distension. Chocolate, citrus fruits, strawberries, nuts, honey, tomatoes can cause allergic skin rashes. Alcohol is absolutely contraindicated to breastfeeding mothers .

Moms Expertise
    I know that some moms, whose babies were super sensitive to the foods they ate... Or that's what we all thought... in my head I thought basically whatever went through me, came directly to them... But, when my son had blood in his poop and it was from intestinal distress, I changed my diet totally... I mean.. Bland bland bland... I ate grilled no seasoned chicken and white rice for months... rarely putting anything of spice or weirdness in there.. and he STILL had blood in his poop and digestive discomfort... There was nothing I could do.. I took out dairy, caffeine, cheese.. everything.. SO, to be honest... I'm not TOTALLY sold on the idea that the baby gets everything directly... I know it's all consistency too... But I beat myself up over a tiny bit of dairy free creamer one day... and in hindsight, I'm not sure anything changed his experience... I' not saying to go chug vodka... I'm just saying.. keep things in perspective, do what you can... but over the top doesn't help anyone... unless you can find a clear source and be sure that that's it...
    By the time I thought I figured it all out, he had grown out of that phase...

    So much to get obsessed over... lol...

      I have never heard of a lot of what's on this list. I ate pretty much what I wanted, though I have avoided caffeine since I got pregnant with my first, besides chocolate of course. :)

      In hindsight, with my babies who spit up a lot I wonder if it was something I ate or if it was just them.
