What can I eat to improve my milk supply and what should I stop eating?
Hi Maxene, congrats on your baby! There are actually no foods you need to avoid while nursing. Many nursing moms feel they need to avoid beans, cruciferous veggies, dairy, etc. for fear that it'll cause their babies to be gassy. However, all foods are innocent until proven otherwise! Meaning, unless you notice an obvious negative reaction in your baby after eating a certain food, there is no need to avoid it. And, all babies have some degree of gassiness as their digestive tract is developing, and many babies tend to get more gassy as the day goes on. This is normal!
