View Full Version : Breastmilk and preservatives
My DD is 5 months old and has had a blocked/mucus nose on and off since she was about 6 weeks old. Someone suggested that she may be having a reaction to dairy so I am going to cut out dairy in my diet. The other thing we've noticed is that she seems to be really hyperactive and hard to settle. Even with low-key activities, she seems to get overstimulated very quickly. Was wondering whether the preservatives in foods that I eat get to her through the breastmilk? She is also on Bactrim as a preventative for UTI - although it doesn't contain sugar, it has flavouring and other things I have no idea about.
Do you drink tea coffee or cola? I'm thinking caffeine, some babies react to caffeine.
The Bactrim mixture will contain artificial sweeteners, and probably artificial flavours. A compounding pharmacy may be able to make you a mixture with natural flavours and no artificial sweeteners.
Yeah, I have a cup of tea in the morning and a coffee maybe 2 times a week. Will be cutting these out now since I'm cutting out dairy.
I never realised (until a wise bubhubber told me) that a cup of tea has more caffeine in it than a can of coke!! :eek:
