How can I increase my breast milk?

OK, now on to things that can help increase your milk supply:
  1. Make sure that baby is nursing efficiently.
  2. Nurse frequently, and for as long as your baby is actively nursing.
  3. Take a nursing vacation.
  4. Offer both sides at each feeding.
  5. Switch nurse.
  6. Avoid pacifiers and bottles when possible.
  7. Give baby only breastmilk.

Consequently, what foods to avoid while breastfeeding?

Foods to avoid while breastfeeding
  • chocolate.
  • spices (cinnamon, garlic, curry, chili pepper)
  • citrus fruits and their juices, like oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit.
  • strawberries.
  • kiwifruit.
  • pineapple.
  • the "gassy" veggies (onion, cabbage, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, and peppers)
  • fruits with a laxative effect, such as cherries and prunes.

Can garlic cause gas in breastfed babies?

Your breastfed baby (or bottle-fed infant, for that matter) will have gas regardless of what he's fed. Strange as it may seem, broccoli, cabbage, garlic, spicy foods, and potato chips won't affect your milk, because the gas that you might experience from these foods is a local reaction in your GI tract.

What foods upset a nursing baby's stomach?

The most likely culprit for your baby is dairy products in your diet — milk, cheese, yogurt, pudding, ice cream, or any food that has milk, milk products, casein, whey, or sodium caseinate in it. Other foods, too — like wheat, corn, fish, eggs, or peanuts — can cause problems.
