View Full Version : is what im eating giving her wind? (breastfeeding)
I've just read the info sheet on colic which lists quite a few foods to avoid when breastfeeding to lessen wind.
Does anyone know any others?
certain foods in the mother’s diet may cause symptoms of food allergy or intolerance in her breastfed baby. Some studies have found that particular foods eaten by the mother including cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, chocolate, onions and cow’s milk can cause an attack of colic in her breastfed infant.
If your DD has colic eliminate them. DD didn't have colic but certain foods did affect her though (not the one's mentioned). Then you can re-introduce them one by one and see if it makes a difference. Write it down so you can really see if re-introducing a food is making a difference. You might find none of those foods affect her at all but other foods you are eating do.
Cheese and Tomatoes used to get my Cici goin :laughing: :banghead: even if i ate lots of carbs :gloomy:
I has 2 small glasses of lemonade my dd got TERRIBLE wind for 3 hours straight it was sheer hell! and then I had three little easter chocolate eggs and she had bad poos so I just cut them out and was fine after that..
U can always eat and try it if its no good then u know what to cut out.. my friend who has a month old she eats and drinks ANYTHING and no problems!
thanks guys. how long does it take for what I eat to reach my milk?
I'm a bit skeptical about what I eat really affecting Josh (who has reflux). I can eat the same thing for days on end and he has good days and bad days. I convinced myself that stewed apples set him off one day (18 hours or so after I ate them) and so I cut them out (but they are one of the few fruits I can eat, so I wasn't getting enough fruit myself!!). Then he had similar symptoms anyway without apples.
If you want to try cutting food out, then do it, but for me it was more stress than it was worth and it was potentially harmful for me (not the right diet) ... and it was not at all clear if a food was affecting him.
I was just about to post on the results of my visit to the allergenist, and you ask the very question!
I have just started an anti-candida diet - basically cutting out sugars and yeasty foods - and its made a dramatic difference already. The proof occurs when I cheat - two handfuls of sultanas yesterday lunchtime amounted to an hour of crying at dinnertime.
There's a long, long list of foods, some of which will be specific to my bub's allergies, but I'll post the whole list on the offchance you want to try eliminating them and see what makes a difference.
I'll post today, thread will be called "allergy diet for wind problems".
