Re: Questions about Food
Many moms feel that there are certain foods that have an impact on milk supply. Dark beer and oatmeal are often said to be good for supply, and the herb fenugreek, which is often an ingredient in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, is also said to be helpful. The herbs peppermint and sage are said to have an opposite effect.
In general, there's no food that a breastfeeding mom needs to consume or avoid in order to have sufficient milk for her baby. But she should always stay attuned to her body.
While you're here, check out the Pregnancy and Birth forum down the page! Tons of great information there.
