Hi All- before I go mad after the birth and eat all the things that I haven't eaten in pregnancy, is there anything I need to avoid if breastfeeding? I understand that I need to be careful with Alcohol but what about things like pate, shellfish, rare steak etc?
all pate and stuff is fine coz the risk whilst preg is food poisioning when baby is here that just you! limit booze and caffine still, some babys do seem affected by certain stuff in mums diet, but this generally only needs looking at if baby is having probs.
I can live with avoiding curries (especially hot ones- more of a tikka masala girl myself)!
Thank goodness for that! I imagined being just about to bite into my pate on toast when the BF police came to take it away!
Thank you for cheering me up!
