    Re: Breastfeeding diet?

    I had luck with the nursing mom tea though I know some have not. Also I found it helped to eat throughout the day, always snacking. I make sure I always have a banana or granola bar handy!

    How much are you doing in solids per day? I think a small dip is normal but they should get the majority of calories from breastmilk - is she crawling? Once Luca learned to crawl we had awhile there...

    We just tried egg yolk and it was a hit! Also whole milk shredded cheese (we do organic mild white cheddar) - even if Luca will eat nothing else he has yet to refuse cheese!
