What foods cause colic in breastfed babies so that I can avoid them?
Babies may begin to eat Cherries from about 8 months of age or sooner with the ok of your paediatrician. Cherries are not highly allergenic however cherries do contain pits and a rather thick skin. Citrus fruits can lead to an upset stomach in babies and might also cause a rash. Common fruits to watch out for include oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes and tangerines. A similar effect is ascribed to kiwis, strawberries, cherries and prunes. The last two can also have a laxative effect on the baby

Let your nipples air-dry after each feeding. To reduce pain, apply cool compresses to your nipples after breastfeeding. Gel pads can also be used on dry nipples. If your nipples are very sore, placing breast shields inside your bra to prevent contact between clothes and nipples may help.

Dr Aina Johnson

Kindly ensure you breastfeed with both breasts. The more the baby sucks a breast, the more breast milk that will be produced from the breast. Ensure the baby is properly latched on. You might need to allow the baby suck from the other breast more to make it equally produce more milk.
