What to Eat and Not during Breast feeding
Here are a few things which should be restricted
Spicy, strong flavored or pungent tasting food as the flavors may penetrate breast milk and make it repulsive for the baby to drink.
Oily, fried, greasy meals as they are difficult to digest and also the extra fat will add to the weight gain of the mother, making it difficult for her to lose ‘baby-fat’ later.
Meals should be simple and fresh as cooked for the whole family.
Strong flavored vegetables like garlic, cabbage, cauliflower and dals like rajma, channa, lobhia effect flavor of breast milk and also are known to aggravate colic in the young infant, hence these should be restricted for a few weeks.
Some of these foods are important in diet:
Plenty of beverages like soups, milk, juices
Milk and milk products
Vegetables which are easy to digest and are not strongly flavored
Salads; can be grated to make them easy to digest and not strain the stitches by adding to bulk.
Breast Milk Producers- Methi seeds, Fennel seeds, Ajwain, til seeds, ginger powder-sauth
