    Question what to eat?

    My son's pedia reminded me to watch what i'm eating because it might make my son gassy. food that i shouldbe avoiding or cut down on are italian/mexican, spicy, raw vegetables, salad, dairy, legumes, nuts, peanut butter, banana, chocolate...so what can i eat? what are your experiences and how did the food affect your DS/DG?

    Hi Cecilia
    How old is your son?

    LLL says there's no reason to cut any food out of your diet unless it's bothering your baby. Here's an article you might find helpful:

    he is 2 wks old. he is not a fussy baby. but when we went to see the doctor today, she noticed that his tummy is hard (i guess that's an indication of being gassy) and reminded me to watch what i'm eating.

    andrea, what's block feeding?

    Block feeding is when you feed you lo off the same breast for 2 feeding in a row. It's a method to deal with the foremilk/hindmilk imbalance often caused by OALD/oversupply. If your baby is not fussy don't worry about changing your diet. Babies are gassy, provided it doesn't upset them you don't need to do anything different. I have to avoid broccoli/cabbage, chocolate and splurging on dairy for one of mine b/c it was painful for her, but her twin never had an issue with the same exact milk.
