Need some help/advise concerning food I can eat during the breastfeeding stages. I've had a MIXED bag of "do's and don'ts" - The nurses, midwives, doctors, pediatricians all have different opinions and as a First/new time mom it is very confusing and overwhelming.
So basically I want to know what I can eat and what I cant eat?
Can I eat eggs, red meat, pasta, curries so forth and so on. Should I avoid cabbage, broccoli all green-leafy vegetables as I hear they are likely to cause winds, cramps in baby.
What about beans in general are they also a no no as they are also considered a "gassy" food. I heard by many I should stay away from citrus juices and pineapple juices as they are to acidic for baby and could cause bum burns(nappy rash) but litchi and apple juices are fine and what about spices that you/I cook with everyday like salt and pepper, thyme and rosemary?????
As you see I have many many questions and very confusing and mixed answers from the medical professionals, please please help someone anyone. BTW our baby is 4 weeks old today.
