Nursing Mothers Eat Ice Cream
Doc, how dangerous is the baby if the nursing mother eats ice cream? At that time I ate it almost every day because I thought it would not affect the ASI. Now my baby is coughing and is a bit stuffy. Is this really the cause of the docks? Please explain, thank you
Some foods should be avoided in breastfeeding conditions, the article of these foods can contain compounds or ingredients that can affect the condition of your milk. Here are some foods and compounds that should be avoided when breastfeeding:
Caffeine (the active ingredient in coffee)
Consumption of seafood (seafood) that is vulnerable to contain mercury
Alcoholic drinks or food
So far there are no reports about the effect of ice cream consumption on breast milk so it is very likely that complaints experienced by your baby are not related to the consumption of ice cream that you have done, except that your ice cream contains certain active ingredients that can affect the condition of your milk. However, you should also monitor complaints that may arise when you consume different types of food so that changes can be made to the appropriate type of food so that complaints do not continue.
Regardless of the possible cause of your baby's complaint, you should still have your baby checked if the complaint persists or worsens so that the doctor can provide appropriate treatment. You can also consult with your doctor directly about your questions to get a detailed explanation of this.
