I had dinner from a local Italian restaurant last night and it had quite a lot of garlic in it. DS (11wks) has been a bit fussy with his feeds today so I'm wondering if it's because of the garlic.
Besides diagnosed food intolerances (e.g. CMPI), do you find that your BF baby is/was sensitive to anything you eat? If so, what do/did they react to? I'm assuming they tolerate different foods better as they get older.

Do some foods bother your breastfed baby?

Yes in my experience it would be the garlic. Sorry :-(. I had to cut out garlic, chili, chocolate, most dairy and onions til DS was about 16 weeks.

Personally I didn't notice anything at all, although if I had I would have been skeptical. Bubs change so quickly, and our brains are wired to find cause when it's not necessarily there. I think a lot of the time, people are finding connections that don't actually exist.
That said, some people are certain that things affect their bubs. Perhaps I was just lucky

No issues with my first, again I are what I pleased with my 2nd but within hours of me eating a banana he'd be really windy! Never from curried/spiced - just bananas. Strange as he now eats then himself like a monkey

Yes. Dd gets really bad gas if I have garlic or spicy food. I've also had to cut out dairy to deal with her reflux.

I couldn't eat anything spicy or with onions.

No, I didn't notice any differences with DD.
I eat the same sort of stuff I did when pregnant so I think she was used to the spices/flavours.
Now that she is on solids too, she won't eat food without spices!!
She is a garlic addict!!

my four children never a problem. I could eat anything I felt like through all the pregnancies and also through breastfeeding. my grandson however, was so seriously allergic to dairy and eggs, my daughter had to cut them from her diet totally or her son had the worst excema on his little face. now he is still seriously allergic and he will get asthma from dairy or egg if he eats any. marie.

I had to avoid chocolate and I really tried to avoid garlic and onion when DS was very young too. A friend of mine had to give up drinking juice as that gave her DD bad wind too.
