    Default Foods to avoid with Breastfeeding

    I am looking to all you experienced mamas who are breastfeeding. What food do you find you need to avoid? as they cause gas or lots of poops? With my other 2 I dont remember either of them tooting as much as this little guy. Its doesnt seem to bother him or cause him any pain just that he is tooting like crazy and seems to poop every other diaper.
    Any Ideas?

    our little guy was having toot/poop issues and it was suggested that I switch from cow's milk to soy milk, but keep things like cheese and yogurt constant. Also I heard, but not sure how true, that if you consume peanut butter while breastfeeding there is a greater chance of your baby having a peanut allergy

    I ate anything and everything.

    If your little guy is happy and content not showing any signs of discomfort, I wouldn't worry about it and I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to avoid certain foods. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, I say.

    I discovered that with this little guy it is best to avoid coleslaw and Wendy's chili. Other than that I eat my regular diet, including nuts & peanut butter.

    If it doesn't bother him or cause him pain then I would think it's fine to continue to eat everything. My little guy is super gassy too. He really stinks some days!! But unless you are very organized and dedicated it will be hard to identify it's cause.

    It's probably wise to avoid Wendy's chili, anyway, lol.

    brocolli and cabbage give this one bad gas. she toots all the time, much more then the other two did, but it doesn't seem to bother her usually, other then the 6am grunts to get the toot out waking me up, its ok.
