As a new parent, ensuring your baby’s comfort and well-being is a top priority. While you may be aware of common foods and beverages that can affect your little one’s digestion, you might be surprised to learn that certain foods in your diet could also be causing your baby discomfort, especially if they have acid reflux.

At Tiny Transitions, we understand the challenges of navigating dietary choices while breastfeeding, as we have Certified Lactation Counselors on staff who coach parents through these struggles right inside our Sleep Steps community. In this blog post, we reveal a list of unexpected foods that may be contributing to your baby’s discomfort, helping you make informed decisions for a happier, healthier baby.

What foods cause baby discomfort

It’s important to watch and journal what things you notice are causing discomfort. Some of these foods are surprising and both your body and baby’s body will respond differently to how they are digested.

As Certified Lactation Counselors who work alongside many hospitals to provide evidence-based sleep education, lactation support and new motherhood coaching, not all babies are the same. Look at your unique diet and find a balance that works for you and baby.
