Preventing Your Baby’s Gas and Colic Symptoms

Check Your Diet

Check Your Diet

There are likely certain foods that cause excess gas in your body, but did you know that these can also affect your baby if you are breastfeeding? The food you eat directly affects your breastmilk, slightly changing its makeup and even altering its flavor.

Some foods notorious for bothering babies through breast milk include:

  • Dairy
  • Cauliflower and broccoli
  • Beans
  • Garlic
  • Spicy foods
  • Coffee
  • Chocolate
  • Alcohol

If you notice that your baby is particularly fussy during or shortly after breastfeeding sessions, start paying closer attention to what you are eating. It is advisable that you keep a food journal or at least creating a note in your phone to help you track your diet as well as your baby’s moods to see if there is a connection.
