I do agree everything should eat in moderation.
Anyone actually tasted your own breast milk before? Does it really taste different depending on what food we eat? I licked off the breast milk off my hand and it tasted sour. Formula also tasted slightly sour but I was told it is sweeter than breast milk.
Cannot eat liver??
Any mummies here ate those above and less milk?
Because Usually CL or mother in law will cook lots of liver and alcohol soups like rice wine, or we drink DOM or ginger wine...
if not much liver and alcohol, then confinement food eat what????!!
I thought brocolli is good cuz vitamins!!
ginger o help us get rid of winds ..
hi rainypink, i think if you wanna eat, it is ok.. but everything in moderation bah... ginger can sometimes worsen jaundice if your baby has it and you're breastfeeding. alcohol can be harmful if it gets into baby's system coz their liver is not developed enough to digest it. cooking the rice wine or DOM in food is ok because the alcohol content will evaporate.
I didn't take any alcohol at all, whether it was cooked or not, coz I was paranoid that it might get to baby and baby's liver is not developed enuff to handle it.
Ginger may worsen jaundice in some cases but if consumed in small amts it is ok.
Confinement food doesn't mean you have to overdose on alcohol and ginger or liver. Rem that too much of a good thing is not good either.
Broccoli may cause painful gas in some baby's tummy. You just have to try eating and see if your baby reacts badly to it.

Can't eat broccoli , eggs , soy? But my confinement lady said it's good for me?
I'd suggest eating small quantities and look at how your baby reacts. Some babies have stomachs made of steel while others are just more sensitive.
I was also paranoid whether to take alcohol or not but my in-law side gave me so much say good for me.. and elderly will keep say "last time we also like that all babies also grow big n strong what.."
Any fruits that we should avoid while breastfeeding?
