Foods that may affect breastfed babies sleep

I have come to realise that some foods we as mums eat while Breastfeeding may affect Babies sleep and how settled they are, and its quite a good idea to avoid these foods for a few days before your Newborn session.

  • chocolate
  • spices (cinnamon, garlic, curry, chili pepper)
  • citrus fruits and their juices, like oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit
  • strawberries
  • kiwifruit
  • pineapple
  • the “gassy” veggies (onion, cabbage, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, and peppers)
  • fruits with a laxative effect, such as cherries and prunes

A daily cup or two of coffee is fine, but too much caffeine can interfere with your baby’s sleep or make him fussy. Remember that caffeine is also found in some sodas, teas, and over-the-counter medicines.

Please do not remove all these foods from your diet without medical advice but its fine to experiment to see if one or two of these foods are affecting your little one.
