7 Foods You Should Avoid When Breastfeeding


5. Garlic

I know that usually garlic is irreplaceable in many dishes, because it adds some special smell and taste for all of them. But, when you eat it garlic adds these things to your milk too. This can bring a lot of problems with breastfeeding. Some babies don’t like the taste and smell of this milk, so many of them just stop drinking it at all. When they aren’t getting enough “food”, they are very nervous and even feel sick. Try to avoid this ingredient in your food and let your breastfed child enjoy his/her meals. Sure, you can eat garlic but do it 2-3 hours before feeding your baby.
