When breastfeeding with allergy symptomsReddening of the skin and rashes, greenish liquid stool, unreasonable anxiety of the baby, strong crying 10-15 minutes after breastfeeding, diaper rash with good care, crusts on the head.
If parents suffer from food allergies, then childrenOften also react poorly to allergenic products. Mom from the first days of breastfeeding can not eat foods that cause allergies to her or father. If the allergy is only in the father, then the mother after the child's 2 months can be a little bit to eat these foods. Perhaps the baby was not allergic to the baby.
When buying products in a store, get a rule -To study their composition. Even to potentially useful products, manufacturers can add allergenic components: dyes, flavors, baking powder, eggs, spicy spices, sodium nitrite, etc. Ideally, buy natural products and prepare food yourself. Remember, even "safe" foods can cause allergy. Therefore, at the first signs of the disease, you should consult a local doctor.
The most difficult thing is to determine the product that causesAn allergy. It will take time. In the beginning, the mother should completely switch to low-allergenic foods and wait until the allergy is stopped. Then introduce one medium-allergen product into the diet and watch the reaction of the child's body. Introducing all new products sooner or later you will be able to identify those that cause allergies. You can try to include them in your diet in a few months, when the baby gets stronger.
Even when on a hypoallergenic diet,Maximize your diet within the limits of the allowed products. And in any case, you can not overeat. Ideally, each product is desirable to eat no more than once every three days. Since some allergens work only after accumulation in the mother's body.
