Answer: In general, there are only two foods breastfeeding women should avoid or consume in very small amounts: alcohol and fish. Alcohol can be passed from mom to baby in breast milk and affect neurologic development. ... Fish (including canned tuna) should be avoided or eaten in moderation, no more than 2 servings a week. Just as when you were pregnant, it's important to eat well while you'rebreastfeeding, with plenty of wholesome fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein, and calcium-rich foods. ... You need an estimated 300-500 extra calories per day as abreastfeeding mother. Hope this helpful.
