Diet for Breast Feeding Mother's

Nursing affects a woman's entire lifestyle. A nursing mother with baby-in-tow should eat a balanced diet with plenty of calcium. This means eating fruits and vegetables, whole-grain cereals and bread, eggs, meats or beans, milk and dairy foods like cheese. The mother needs to get enough calories-about 500 more per day than usual-and she need to drink plenty of fluids. A balanced diet that includes 5 servings of milk or dairy products each day will give you enough Calcium.


Certain food products are best avoided as these can appear in the milk. Before taking any tablets clarify with your doctor. Smoking should be avoided. Smoking during breastfeeding is harmful for the baby and also decreases the milk secretion.

When you are feeding the baby you should avoid foods that has spices like garlic, chili, and pepper since this may cause gas problems in the baby. It will later produced bloating symptoms. You should also avoid cow's milk since as we know it is a common cause of food allergies, it can actually cause red patches on your baby's skin. Also, Red pepper should really be avoided too since this may cause dermatitis in breastfeed babies. But, of course you have to ask advice from the expert like the doctors to be sure. There are foods that might not be good to your baby and you unconsciously eat them.
