What Foods to Avoid When Breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding diet

Your diet during breastfeeding has a high impact on your baby’s health. 

The foods you should avoid when breastfeeding include:

  • Fish high in mercury;
  • Alcohol;
  • Caffeine;
  • Herbal supplements and supplements in general unless agreed by a doctor;
  • Highly processed foods.

Unlike baby formula, breast milk composition constantly changes from feeding to feeding to meet a growing baby’s changing needs. 

You should consider reevaluating your diet if your baby shows a negative, unusual response to breast milk. It would be best if you also mentioned that in your next checkup with a doctor.
