Useful breastfeeding guide for mums
You may or may not have noticed your baby acting irritable or fussy shortly after nursing. While some foods may affect you and some may not, we strongly suggest avoiding the foods listed below for 24 hours prior to our newborn session.
(Every baby is different; please speak with your paediatrician/midwife/health visitor to obtain more information.)
These food items tend to agitate newborns.
Citric or Acidic foods and drinks, such as:
Peanuts and nuts in general
Tacos / Spicy Mexican Foods / Salsa
Tomatoes or Tomato Products, including Ketchup.
Gassy Vegetables, such as:
Cucumbers + Pickles
*If you breastfeed, it’s also a good idea to have at least one bottle pumped for feeding. We’ll give you plenty of time and privacy to breastfeed during the session, but a bottle or two is good to have on hand for emergencies.
