Feeding:What to avoid when nursing?
2000-12-10
Name: Ole We have a newborn boy which struggles with digestion, gas etc. We are not Indian, but normally eat a lot of vegetarian/vegan international, sometimes spicy food. What do you Indians do with the diet of nursing mothers to avoid problems for the baby?

Thanks, Ole

Hi Ole,
I do not have any idea what to be left in nursing.But I can say you what to be taken while you are in nursing.You need to take lot of fruits which would help you to produce new blood for you in the body.

Hi Ole,
So it would be better tell to your wife that not to take so spicy food.Because baby would take milk from the mother.And you can consult to doctor and they would give you some medicine for your baby.

Hello Ole,
You need to consult to the doctor and must find all these they would give you with all kind of clarifications also so you just ask your doctor to whom you are going for regular check up and then you share it with us also.

Subject:  Diet for a nursing mother!
Hi Ole,

It would be very good if you drank milk atleast while you are nursing you kid! It helps to provide the required nutrition to the mother.....But if you are still very insistent about no milk then please do not punish your selves with only boiled veggies....Like Namitha has pointed out we Indian womn are very pampered after delivering a baby and get to eat the most nutritious and fresh foods! We are fed Lots of Ghee-it is said this kind of cleanses the insides and fortifies the mothers lost energies! Yes we are also given a lot of garlic in our food and cumin and green leafy veggies and are made to avoid all foods that would cause the mother flatulence cos' then the baby suffers with the same.

What you can do is prepare fresh veggies cut finely - Use some extra fat in your diet....don't worry about putting on weight it all gets absorbed and disappears and will leave a healthier you! Ok now u can prepare you veggies by sauteeing finely chopped onions and garlic and cumin then adding the veggies of your choice to them and cover the pan and cook over a slow fire till they are soft and ready to eat. Gently turn these veggies over a flame for a couple of minutes and you food is ready! You can smash some garlic pods and swallow them with water as this helps with the flatulence! Also stay away from potatoes and beans and cauliflowers and ladies fingers etc.during this period they cause flatulence. No dals too!

Ghee - would be available at any Indian store but again it is a product obtained from boiling cream! If you can give up veganism for a few months it will be nice cos' all these old wive tales used on us Indians do hold us in good stead later on in life!

I forgot to mention the adding of turmeric and salt to taste ofcourse ! Turmeric is an antiseptic !Its good. Yes avoid spices for atleast the 1st 6 weeks after delivering and for as long as you can after that!

Again where I have mentioned that you must cook over a flame after the veggies are done I meant cook over a High flame for a couple of minutes! I also fully understand that it would be difficult for you to give up a vegan diet cos' as a vegetarian I could never imagine eating non - veg so I would suggest that you think this over calmly and maybe there is a substitute for these products that I have mentioned for you!

There are two opinions on this. The traditional view is that a woman should eat non-spicy, non-flatulent items. No aerated cold drinks, no ice cream, no curd etc. But the modern medical view is that eat anything and be happy, because your baby is getting only sterile milk, irrespective of the food you eat. Therefore, just follow your inner voice and stand by it.

OK, let me post a different version of my last question... what do nursing mothers actually eat? We are vegans ninmilk-vegetarians, and since spices, garlic, onion, beans, nuts and oily food is taboo, not so much is left...

Ole

I think it would be advisable to eat boiled veggies, so that you avoid oil and spice. And you can just sprikle slat and pepper to add to the taste. It will keep you and your child healthy.

Well, the doctor has told me that I can eat anything, including non-veg. But, we are brahmins based in New York. My mom in-law does not like non-veg, She says it is not good for breastfeeding mothers. I also want to know as to whether I should follow religion or the doctor?

If the child is passing gas, it is natural. It has little to do with your eating habits. Do not worry too much about your food.

Interesting question. As a person who didnt really care about my diet before I had the baby, as part of the confinement practices, I went along with what my mom dictated, and actually ended up enjoying the diet. I do believe it affects the baby if you are exclusively nursing. For 40 days after delivery and even longer since I relished it I had fresh food at every meal no leftovers absolutely even within the day -- rasam a SOuth Indian soup like concotion with a lentil base, tempered with cumin and mustard, a vegetable lightly sauteed and tempered, and rice. No curd but milk instead. Between meals I had oat porridge which I grew to love, and toast if I felt like it. I also had garlic fried in ghee which is believe to increase milk flow besides helping to control flatulence. I have also found that chewing a small quantity abt quarter tsp of ajwain I believe this is called bishops weed after your meals helps to control flatulence and vomiting in the infant. Believe me, you get plenty of advice from everybody, but it depends a lot on how much help you have to do all these things. In India, women are usually pampered during this time by their moms, so it is fine to sit back and relaxdid I say relax?...I mean look after the baby. In S. India a great deal of importance is placed on diet, and also restrictions are placed on going out. Apart from whatever religious and social connotations this has, I do believe that it is primarily to avoid infection. Having been through a tense eighth month, and having an induced delivery with a 2.25kg baby, I didnt want to take any risks.
THere is another school of thought that all this does not matter. But it helped me to have some kind of regimen in my life when it suddenly changed forever.
