What to eat and not to eat while breastfeeding

While breastfeeding it is very important that you pay attention to your diet. Just because you are no longer pregnant doesn't mean what you eat and drink doesn't effect your child. Something simple like drinking a cup of coffee in the morning can lead to an overstimulated baby. By eating healthy you provide you and your child with better nutrition and can even increase your milk supply. Take a look below at some of the best and worst foods for when you are breastfeeding.
