@shikha Singh.....    it proved to be myth to me... elders at home suggested to avoid curd, chana daal, Puri, pakoda to keep the baby safe from getting problems from me...they said if I get cold baby would but it's not true... eating anything access is not good for our health but moderate qty is ok.... nothing transferred to my baby as per her pediatric...baby get gas due to many issues but ppl connect with mother...cold is contagious but still mother is blamed and punished to avoid her favorite food....just take care of the baby and enjoy eating anything u like.....as per my lactation counselor and baby's pediatric....we r doing good

hello dear  i can only give my example. i got 104 fever for 5 to 6 days after 15 days of my baby born. got admitted than.
my elders toldme not to feed her or sleep near her. i was depressed but my dr told me to have planty of fluids n med in time. i took mask n wn ever my fvr camedown i use to feed her. i ate every thing and my baby was touchwood ok.

hi shikha, have everything in moderation... some components do get passed via breastmilk to baby. like garlic milk is known to make baby colic, caffeine and alcohol do get passed to baby. but a baby will have gas no matter how much diet restriction you keep(btw, your gas will not pass to baby, as gas is made in the digestive system and milk comes from an entirely different body part). so you go ahead and enjoy that chana and sauce(would like to know what dish it is 😛), and give baby proper burping, tummy time and leg cycling, tummy massage... take care dear... 😊

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

priya dev have everything you want in moderation.... nothing will happen...try yourself...i have oranges, Chicco, banana almost everyday.... unhealthy food should be avoided and you can have anything homemade...
