By Christian Simpson | Baby

Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby. There are certain developmental and health benefits that only breastfed babies can enjoy, and this is why more and more mothers are opting to give their babies breastmilk instead of opting for formula milk. Breastfeeding is certainly not easy but is it doable. It would be convenient if you could stay at home to do it with your little one but there are tons of ways to get it done when you’re outside, too.

There’s been a lot of talk for quite some time now about how long you should give breast milk to your baby. Some say you should do it for six months, and other say up to his first year while there are also those who say you should do it as long as your baby still wants to nurse. The latter option is what the La Leche League International recommends. If that’s what you’re aiming for, though, you should make sure that you have ample milk supply to give to your little one, and that is where your diet comes in.

As a breastfeeding mom, it is important that you pay close attention to your diet. What you eat can affect your milk in various ways. It could have an impact on the quality of your milk, the quantity of your milk, and it may even change the flavor/taste of your milk which, to your baby, could be a big deal.

Certain foods can help boost your milk supply, but there are also those that can weaken it. If you’re planning on or are already breastfeeding your child and you want to ensure that he gets only the best, check out this list of what not to eat when breastfeeding.
