Most mothers can eat anything they want when they breastfeed, but they should not take alcohol or any foods that are potential allergens. Like everybody else, breastfeeding mothers need to eat a balanced diet.
Babies are exposed to their mothers’ food preferences from the time they are in the womb. And the interesting thing is whatever mothers eat, the babies will taste it through their milk and start to get them ready for table foods when they’re about 6 months old. If a mother perceives that her baby reacts to a specific food she eats, it is best to consult a specialist.
