Q:

I'm breastfeeding wanted to know if I can have watermelon and mangoes? I had mangoes one week back and that first mango gave me bad tummy. After that I have been taking half mango with my oats in the morning.

mangoes and watermelon both are absolutely safe to have. but niwadays we have fruits coming with a lot of chemicals and pesticides... that's probably what gave you stomach upset. try to buy not so perfect looking fruits, because they are boubd to be heavily treated with chemicals. also keep them in vinega+water for half hour and wash with warm water...

water melon you can have anytime and in any quantity. It's good for you Mangoes eat in moderation.Scoop out pulp and have. and .Sometimes it may upset stomach or it will be heat. Also.. mangoes will make you gain weight.

Thanks. Someone told me not to have black grapes but only the white one when I'm lactating. Any idea if this is correct?

For some black grapes causes allergic cough. If you ok with it... can eat in moderation.
