Re: How much does mums diet affect baby?
some babies are fussy,and colicky independently from their mom's diet.
I weighed the risks vs benefits of eliminating milk in my diet when i was nursing ds3.
the risks of eliminating milk from my diet? Well I had 3 kids under 4 I was always hungry and I Liked milk in my cereal. i did not want to give up the one thing that was giving me pleasure, mmmm cold creamy milk in my capn' crunch.
the benefits of giving up milk, well ds3 was a crying ball of colick. i had to hold him 24 hours/ day. he screamed and carried on like we were tourturing him. his sisters were afraid of him, he cried so hard he had an umbilical protrusion.
I gave up milk for a month, he had a slight improvement, he was consolable. dh and I actually found a spare moment to make love.
then i went back to milk. ds3 did not revert to his frantic existence. yes, he was still colicky but he outgrew the scary crying jags.
