Good afternoon Mardliah,
Breastfeeding is an important process after the birth of the baby because basically parents always want the best for their child, including the problem of nutritional intake. However, you don't need to worry too much about the food you eat, remembering that there is no special dietary or drink restrictions for a mother while breastfeeding her child. It's just that it must be emphasized that every intake of a mother must be healthy and nutritious because it will affect the quality of breast milk given. Therefore you can eat and drink anything as long as it is not excessive and disturbs your health.
Here are some things you should avoid while breastfeeding:
Smoking, cigarette smoke can be directly inhaled by your baby which will interfere with and even cause disease in the respiratory system, for example pneumonia
Soft drinks, while breastfeeding you may often feel thirsty but don't consume soft drinks because they only contain high calories without any nutritional content
Alcoholic drink, this drink can mix directly with breast milk while breastfeeding which in turn will damage important organs in your baby
Certain types of fruit and vegetables, for some mothers who breastfeed after consuming certain fruits and vegetables the baby will experience an allergic reaction, which can be redness of the skin, vomiting, diarrhea, and so on.
Medicines that are a high risk for breastfeeding mothers. please always consult your doctor that you are breastfeeding before getting treatment
Regarding milk products, one of them is UHT milk, which is a milk product that only differs in the manufacturing process and has almost the same nutritional content as other dairy products. The advantage of this product is its relatively long durability. You can read the UHT milk article for more information. Meanwhile, chocolate and biscuits contain a number of calories and carbohydrates, which are recommended nutrients for breastfeeding mothers. It's just that it should be underlined that chocolate also contains caffeine which is not recommended in large quantities. Once again, a nursing mother can eat and drink anything as long as it is not excessive and disturbs her health.
However, you should be vigilant if after eating certain foods or drinks, your baby has redness of the skin, diarrhea, nausea, tightness, or becomes restless. You should immediately visit a doctor to get the right treatment. In addition, you can also make notes of food or drinks that are part of your daily menu so that when your baby experiences changes due to breastfeeding, you can avoid these foods or drinks in the future.
