Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed a baby. It is all the nutrition a baby needs to survive. It helps build babies immune systems by passing the mother's antibodies to baby which formula can not do. The breast is the perfect shape for baby and helps jaw and mouth development unlike bottles. The…re are so many other examples of why breastfeeding is best for mother and baby. (MORE)
Light foods such as toast, jelly, soup, crackers, you get the idea. Avoid things such as meat, spices, caffeine, alcohol and milk. If you feel a sense of nausea returning after eating, stop for a while until the nausea settles.
No, while you are breast feeding you should not take any form of drug not prescribed to you by a qualified medical practitioner. This is for two reasons . While under the influence of drugs you can not properly meet your responsibilities for looking after the child. . What you eat, drink or take …will make its way into your breast milk and form there into your child - he she will be taking drugs too. . Please while you are raising your baby, stay off drugs. (MORE)

It is illegal but yes if ur a d u m b a s s
Vegetables. Don't sugar coat 'em, 'cause you'll just eat that too. become a vegetarian with out eating any kind of meats
breastfeeding is a natural form of contraception, however it shouldn't be relied on as it is not reliable. take a test if you think your pregnant again.
Yes. Make sure to go to a clean and sterile studio that follows universal precautions, including using an autoclave (that is spore tested at least once a week), single-use ink caps, gloves, and needles. Nope. Tattoo artists will not do it. You have to have your "6 week clearance" after you stop brea…tfeeding from your doctor. If you get a tattoo while breast feeding, it CAN possibly enter the blood stream and then pass through the breat milk. It is just not worth endangering your child if something MIGHT happen. (MORE)
I just spoke with my doctor and they said it is fine to take DayQuil while pregnant and breastfeeding. Pretty much if you could take it while pregnant, you can take while breastfeeding is what she said..
There are various diet plans that you can adopt wile onphentermine. You would need water, fiber, vegetables, fruits,proteins as well alkalizing foods.
If it is the 'mini-pill' it is fine to take whilst breastfeeding. The 'combined' pill will however affect you milk production.
there is no reason why you can not use sunbeds when breastfeeding, so long as it is not at the same time!. be aware sunbeds can increase the risk oof skin cancer but at the same time is very good for bad skin conditions such as soriouses and acne.. you make me sick you sick person why do you want …to kill youre baby! . im not sure - i hope so cos i use one at least once a week and have just found out im pregnant (MORE)
all of carbon monoxide and other pollutants floating around in your blood are transmitted to your baby through your milk. You should see if your Health Department has a Carbon Monoxide testing device so you can see how much is in your blood - it's pretty amazing (and scary) ... anyway why it's bad:… it displaces the oxygen in your blood; which can cause an array of issues ... like in a baby developing organs and braincells - less blood flow, possibly under development.

\nYou can but you might regret it! The spicy food will influence the flavor of the milk and can upset your baby's stomach, and the hours of screaming may not be worth a spicy meal. Sometimes the baby won't even drink the milk if it is too strong. My daughter refused to eat after I had eaten someth…ing that was loaded with garlic. I expressed milk for a couple of hours and then I guess it was out of my system so she began to nurse again. \nAn exception would be if you ate spicy food during your pregnancy. Amazingly the amniotic fluid is also influenced by what we eat, so if you ate spicy foods during pregnancy then the baby will be used to it. I believe there have been studies based on Latin American cultures where the food tends to be spicier; they've found that babies and children have higher tolerances than children from cultures with blander cuisine (MORE)
Yes, there are BCP you can use while breast feeding - safely. T he "mini-pill" or progestin-only pill (POP) brand name - Micronor, Errin, Nor-QD, Ovrette, Microval - is preferred for women who are breast feeding because there is no effect on the quality or quantity of breast milk.. The…se pills must be taken at the same time every day - forgetting even one or taking it as little as 3 hours late can allow ovulation to occur.. Plan B - Emergency Contraceptive is another POP - because of the high dose of hormones this should be used as a last resort and never as routine BC - breast feeding or not. But it is seen as safe for mothers and their infants - it should not be used in the first six weeks after birth due to the stress on an infant's immature liver (hormones are broken down in our liver). . Combination pills contain estrogen a hormone that is known to effect the quantity of breast milk (sometimes dramatically) and has an anecdotal effect of shorter duration of breast feeding. These pills should not be used until the baby is six months old and has an established routine that includes solid foods. . (MORE)
I am a nutritionaist who specialises in helping mums and pregnant women get the best nutrition - and so many of the mums want to lose their baby weight whilst breastfeeding. As mums are regularly breastfeeding for 6 months now the weight loss question is one I am getting more and more and a lot of… mums have asked about Herbalife. I fully researched all of the products in the Herbalife range and there are a lot of them! They are a nutrition company so everything they make comes from a strong scientific backing which is good and the products are sound. However - I would not recommend all of the products when breastfeeding as some have caffeine in and weight loss acelerators which are not good if you want a restful baby. The products in the range that I do endorse to my clients are the formula 1 nutritional shake and the flora fibre tablets. These contain no caffeine or weight loss accelerators and the mums I know have used them have had good weight loss results of approx 500g - 800g per week. The product is basically a meal replacement but it's focus is on nutrition not weight loss (with weight loss being a by product of getting good nutrition) and this is why I recommend it. (MORE)
No. Soma (Carisoprodol) is a skeletal muscle relaxant, and this medication passes into breast milk in large amounts. Nursing mothers should avoid this drug because it affects their babies.. You can talk to you doctor and ask if there is another muscle relaxant that you can take while nursing that w…on't pose any risk to your baby. (MORE)
There isn't anything special you should or shouldn't eat if you are nursing unless your baby has an allergy (like dairy or soy). If the baby does then you should avoid anything containing the allergen.
Just to let you know Pineapples are acidic so that can affect the child depending on how acute their reaction to that may be. So, in certain cases it can cause rashes, but overall no, pineapples have no adverse affect whatsoever.. hope this helps.
Fentanyl in any form is excreted in breast milk, so in general it's not recommended unless your doctor deems that the risk is low enough. Typically this would be if you're not a long term patient, but few of us who are Fentanyl users of any type are short term users. If you've been using it for a w…hile, it is not easy to end your dependence and switch to an acute pain med for the short term either unless you're prepared for the withdrawal effects, which can be as bad as the pain you're dealing with anyway. I've had to increase and lower my dosages many times over the years (sometimes doubling from 100mcg to 200mcg's) and it's never easy. After 9 years of Fentanyl use (Duragesic) and corrective surgery I was finally able to end my Fentanyl dependence, though I still require Percocet, though in less dosages than I've needed in years (regular prescription was 120-150 per month, and my Duragesic patches only lasted 48 hours, not 72). However, it took 7 months of steady lowering of dependence levels and 2 major withdrawal periods, a 1 week period (actually 5 days), and a 3 week period. It takes the body about 2-4 weeks to recover after that. If you're already pregnant, I don't recommend it as your body is already dealing with enough problems. Even though I'm off it for now, I know I'll have to start using it again at some point when my next spinal operation is performed. Trust me when I tell you that it's not something you want to pass to your baby, however slim the chance might be. It was difficult for me to deal with the withdrawal effects, and I knew what to expect. I cannot imagine a baby having to go through something similar. It's a shame to miss out on the experience, but the realities for those of us who are S2 opiate patients are that we aren't able to experience many things we'd like, both for ourselves and the safety of others. Our Quality of Life is already strained - you don't need to add any more issues to yours. (MORE)
While Advil (Ibuprofen) should be avoided during pregnancy, it is considered ok to use when breastfeeding.
After giving birth to my first child, (which I breastfed) my midwife said I can go back to eating everything I did before I got pregnant just don't go mad with the booze!!
Don't worry about having your period while breastfeeding this is normal. If you have given birth within a month it is unlikely to be a true period and will be postnatal bleeding (this can last weeks, sometimes months). The most likely time to get your first period is sometime after you introduce sol…ids or formula to your little ones diet. Remember just because you haven't had a period does not mean you aren't fertile and can't get pregnant. (MORE)
No. The Master cleanse is a very restrictive diet, and shouldn't really be encouraged at all. It diuresis (drains water) from your body as well as nutrients. That could dry up your milk, and will certainly deplete your body of nutrients that your baby needs. You need them too! The best way to lose w…eight AND cleanse while breastfeeding is to eat a BUNCH of fruits and vegetables and drink plenty of water. (MORE)
Most babies can tolerate all foods in moderation. The main culprits of gassy babies though are EXCESS of dairy, spicy foods, fruit juices, beans/broccoli/cauliflower, onions/garlic and chocolate.
I'm sorry but haven't you gotten any education about pregnancy, breastfeeding and babies? EVERYTHING you eat, inhale, drink gets to the baby! If you get high the baby get high. So no, using drugs while breastfeeding so your baby gets high on drugs is not allowed! Also even if you weren't breastfeedi…ng, using drugs while taking care of a child is negligence. (MORE)
Yes, I hardly ever leaked with my son even in the first weeks. Every woman is different in that aspect.
When you talk with food in your mouth, it means you don't have manners. Edit: Also, bits of food can fly out. The short answer is : the epiglottis is a movable flap of tissue attached behind/under the tongue which blocks the entrance to the trachea (windpipe) when food is swallowed, thus protecti…ng the lungs by forcing the food to pass over the trachea and instead go down the esophagus (food- & drink-pipe) into the stomach. If you talk while eating, and you happen to be a toddler, your Mum will tell you off. If you talk while eating, and you are older than that, people may think you are a bit of a pig....... (MORE)
Yogurt with active cultures at least once a day to keep your intestinal flora level up.
No problem. If you and your baby are in good health there is no problem with this kind of exercise program. Of course, make sure you are getting enough water and nutrition. I would advise that you stay away from any extreme diet program. Some runners carb load during training, but I would suggest th…at you focus your diet on keeping it well rounded with plenty of fruits and vegetables. The other element you need to mind is a proper well fitting sports bra. If you haven't run since you gave birth, you will probably find that your normal sports bra no longer fits. With the increased size and weight of your breasts proper support is even more important that usual. If you have any other concerns address them with your doctor or lactation consultant. Good luck on the race and let the rest of us know your time once the race is over. (MORE)
I has been told yes and no, when it cones to suboxone and breastfeeding, I would talk to your suboxone doctor bc they know more about it than any other doctors. I do know wemen who have but they also were on very low dose ( 2 mg daily) so I don't know if that changes anything. Good luck
Good morning, please can you let me know if it is safe to takeFlexor joint and mobility support if i am breastfeeding? Mydaughter is 4 months old. Many thanks Tracy
You can take Sudafed when you are breastfeeding. But just remember that it in your system and it is transmitted to the baby by breastfeeding. So he or she is going to have the same side effect's. Call The Nurse Practitioner At the Doctor's office or the pharmacy tech.
From personal experience i have found that if the benefits outweigh the risks in taking a medication you should continue to take the prescribed medication. Now that is what i was told by my doctor. However i am no medical doctor and situations very. You should inform your ob of any medications you a…re on when u become pregnant and decide what is OK to take throughout the pregnancy and beond, specifically while breastfeeding. For me my adderall was deemed OK i was monotered... perfect pregnancy and my breastfeeding baby boy has no problems thus far at two months. Remember every mother and baby is different so don't try to make a medical decision on your own always inform your doctor of what you are on no matter what. (MORE)
There are lots of medications safe while breastfeeding. Call your local lactation consultant and have her check the meds before taking them
Truffles are a type of fungus that grow on trees. They are safe forpregnant or breastfeeding women so long as they are eaten inmoderation. It is not safe for small children under the age ofthree to consume truffles since they can be high in bacteria.
it is perfectly fine to get a pem while breastfeeding... there is no evidence that it has any effects on your baby so your baby will be perfectly safe, hope this helps happy perming! :)
The best advice is to avoid overeating or eating within 3 hours of bedtime. Cut down on acidic and caffeine intake. Lean meat is better to consume than fatty, while cabbage, avocados, guava, plantains, and pinto beans help to protect the lining of the stomach. Wheat germ, honey on and empty stomach,… yogurt, and kale help sooth the pain. (MORE)
You will not necessarily miscarry, unless if you are undernourished. In that instance, the body will expel foetus first if it seems you endanger you.
Sushi can be okay while breastfeeding, but be careful. Some sushi is just sweet rice, vegetables, and cooked fish, all of which are healthy at any time. Other types of sushi, primarily sashimi, contain ingredients (like raw fish) that you should consult a doctor about.
Mostly milk, meats, and grain. Fish and steak can be really healthy for the baby but make sure not to drink too much soda.
it means your body is back to normal and fertile again. Protect yourself against pregnancy unless you want a baby again. Breastfeeding does not protect you from pregnancy. It's a old wife's tale..
Foods rich in fiber and protein are good choices for a healthy diet. Be sure to stock up on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. You will find great results by following this advice.
you can do what ever you want i just might: a become infected b be bad for your baby
High protein diets are good for losing weight, but you have to make sure you eat vegetables and fruits low in sugar with it. Consuming a lot of protein in a diet is good as long as you incorporate the whole grains with it and the veggies and fruits. Whole grain food such as whole grain breads and pa…stas are also better for you and will help you with eating healthier...Stay away from fast food restaurants there is nothing healthy at those places.

Yes, in fact it is recommended that you continue taking prenatal vitamins for the entire time you breastfeed.
You cannot take antiviral medication while breastfeeding.Any medication that you will take must be prescribed by your doctor.
It depends on if one is obese or merely somewhat overweight. Forone who is obese, the main things are: exercise, no sweetenedliquids at all, and no junk food at all. Preferably no sugar. Eat 3small-portioned meals/day; do not skip breakfast; and avoid snacks.Limit calories to around 1500/day (better… to consult a doctor ornutritionist), and weigh yourself 2-3 times/week. Ignore thesensation of hunger. If you see your weight diminishing at areasonable rate (1-2 pounds/week), keep it up. For one who is moderately overweight, the above guidelines can berelaxed a little. For dieters in general: Avoid crash diets, diet pills etc. Avoid fatty cuts of meat. Walkas much as possible. Bicycling and swimming are good too. More guidelines: Don't concentrate on specific foods so much as on a balanced,healthy diet plus exercise. Plenty of moderate exercise rather thanintense exercise, which can damage your joints. Good nutrition means eating what your body needs, while ingestingas few harmful things as possible. It has also been described asgetting enough of each of the major food categories (grains,fruits, vegetables, protein, dairy, etc.; plus plenty of water). This will vary somewhat from one person to another; and I don'tbelieve that there's any universal diet that can be prescribed foreveryone. Avoid best-sellers with their perennial fads. And thinktwice before using any dietary supplements. In general, one's starting point can be a menu of whole grains,whole-wheat bread, a good amount of vegetables, some fruits andnuts, fish, lean meats (in not-large amounts), and some dairy.However, this must be tweaked according to one's health, weight andother factors at the outset; and also adjusted over time, as onesees what works for him/her in particular. Another general thing that may be said is: the less salt, thebetter. The less processed foods, the better. The less junk food,the better. The less sweetened drinks, the better. Also...whenever you feel queasy, nauseous, constipated or otherwisenot completely well, try to remember what you've eaten over thelast several hours or the last day. This is one method of adjustingone's food habits. See also the attached Related Link. (MORE)
