    Default Foods that might irritate baby

    I'm wondering if some things I'm eating might be making DD fussy. I'm going to cut dairy and see if that helps, what other foods should I avoid? And should I just skip the obvious forms of diary since it's not an allergy, I just want to see if it makes a difference.

    My friend just had a baby and she said her pedi recommended cutting caffein, brocolli, chocolate, and I *think* spicy foods. I never had problems with food I ate, but if you cut out everything that could possibly be giving gas, then you can always reintroduce it later.

    my lc said that the whole idea of avoiding broccoli or chocolate or other 'fussy' foods is a myth and to eat what you like. that being said, there is always the possibility of an allergy or sensitivity, like to dairy, soy, nuts, etc. here is a link to kelly mom that i found helpful: http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns...nsitivity.html
    good luck, i hope things get better for you!

    How does the fussiness present itself? Is gas also accompanying the fussines?

    She does seem gassy when she is fussy, that's why I thought maybe it was something I was eating. DS never seemed to mind what I ate so I'm new to this.

    The only other thing I can think of is that she likes to cluster feed in the afternoon and is getting frustrated that my supply isn't there yet. The food thing is the only thing I can control right now so I thought I'd give it a try.

    My pedi told me to avoid citrus type fruits (berries, oranges, limes-lemons, tomatoes, etc.), greasy food, spicy foods, all the other obvious ones that other mommas have posted. I too heard that all this is a myth and that you can eat what you want unless your LO develops a food allergy at which time you do need to pin point what it is and you can only do this by eliminating certain foods.
