What foods should I avoid while breastfeeding my baby?

Foods to Avoid

There is no set list of foods that every nursing mother should/should not eat. Some baby's however are more sensitive to certain gassy foods especially in the early weeks or months. If you are experiencing a gassy baby, look for correlations when the baby is gassy and you have eaten these foods in the last 24 hours: green leafy vegetables, broccoli, tomato or sauce, citrus juices or fruit. If you cut out these foods temporarily, the baby should feel relief in the next 24 hours if that food was the culprit. If the problem is dairy products, you won't find relief for 10 days to 2 weeks.
