I know that i shouldn't eat veggies from the cabbage family because they are gassy foods. What about Kim Chee, fermented cabbage? I want to eat to get healthy bacteria in gut, probiotic, to avoid getting thrush.
There's no reason to avoid supposedly "gassy" foods while breastfeeding. If your particular baby seems to have a sensitivity to a particular food in your diet, you might try eliminating it. It's much more likely that s/he would have problems with you eating dairy or soy than cabbage, though.
If I eat green foods--most notably spinach, broccoli, and mustard---ds gets the toots. But, he doesn't seem uncomfortable at all, so I keep eating them. And, then we get good laughs at all the funny sounds he can make.
My 3 week old was verry uncomfortable after a dinner that consisted of kale, and has been somewhat fussy after cabbage. Since I have identified the cole crops as culprits, I wish to return to the beginning of this thread and ask if anyone knows whether kimchi or saurkraut generally cause the same symptoms as the unfermented veggies. We have a great big jar of Kimchi made from bok choy, radishes, turnips from the garden & are getting ready to make the kraut. Does the "predigestion" that occurs in the ferments change the gassiness?
my 4 month old is sensitive to the brassicas, which stinks because i love them! i think i miss broccoli most of all
i can handle kim chee in small amounts. if your baby can't, i suggest trying kefir, kombucha, yogurt, or fermented beets (my favorite!) then you can still get the good bugs. good luck!
