Caffeine carries some advantages, but many disadvantages, whose excessive intake may harm the health, badly. However, consuming coffee in moderation will do to some extent, but it’s over consumption may bring some difficulties? Take a gap of at least 6 months to consume coffee or else in case, your child is allergic to caffeine then do avoid consuming coffee still the last stage of breastfeeding. It depends upon the child bearing ability; some child is so sensitive that they get infected soon. Consume caffeine; if, your child carry bearing ability or else avoid its consumption. However, a new born baby carries a very weak digestive system, which fails to digest everything. It takes at least 6-7 months to improve their digestive system. Hence, avoiding such caffeine contain stuff would be beneficial, for the baby.

Consuming fish thrice in a week has been suggested, but that should be rich in omega 3 fatty acids. However, consuming mercury contains fish should be avoided; since, it is harmful for the health. Especially, a breastfeeding mother should avoid such fish; since, it may harm the baby. Mercury is a component that is found in the fish, which may lead to brain and nerve disorders. Moreover, it’s a suggestion for the pregnant and breastfeeding women to avoid eating mercury contained fish; since, this may bring many defects in the children. However, consuming fish during pregnancy is good, but it should not be much mercury contained one. Women need to be more cautious during breastfeeding time; since, newborn baby is more likely to get ill.

Consuming fatty foods bring many health disorders to your child like obesity, improper digestive system, blood pressure issue, improper flow of blood, and many other health defaults. An unhealthy diet may enhance the risk of unhealthy pregnancy, and healthy diet promotes healthy pregnancy. A woman, who maintains a healthy diet, may get normal delivery.

If, you are a breastfeeding mother than avoid consuming cold stuff; since, this may cause cold cough to the baby. Cold water, cold drinks, ice cubes, etc. may infect the baby. Hence, try to consume such things in the room temperature level; since, it stabilizes the body temperature, which not only good for the mother, but for the baby as well.
• Avoid consuming spicy things
I know the spicy foods taste very good, but for the child you have to stay away from it for some time; since, consuming spicy foods during the breast feeding period may lead to diarrhea, irritating bowel, and improper digestion system in the child. It not only affects the child, but also affects the mother. Hence, a woman must avoid eating spicy food during breastfeeding.
• Avoid drinking alcohol
‘Alcohol a slow poison of early death’; consuming alcohol during pregnancy may lead to miscarriage and many defects in the developing baby called brain disorders, feeble bones, weak organs, etc. Moreover, consuming alcohol during breastfeeding may bring many health disorders in the baby. More chances for the baby to become alcoholic in the future. Further, weak memory power, inactive immune system, weak organs, sensitive skin, etc. could take place in the baby, if alcohol consumed during the breastfeeding period. These cases are mostly seen in foreign countries. I would suggest avoiding alcohol consumption at least in pregnancy and breast feeding stage to get the healthy and active baby. A woman who wanted to get healthy delivery, then ‘say no to alcohol’?
• Avoid smoking
Smoking is another dangerous life taking stuff, which leads to early death in the people. Most of the women are found addicted to smoking. This is harmful for their present and future. Smoking decreases the pregnancy chances, and in case if you will get pregnant, you may face miscarriages, and if you get the baby, then your baby may face many health disorders.
