Hi There! so, here is my issue... I am still breastfeeding my daughter who is 21 Months old, lately my milk has been really smelly and her breath too, the smell is like onions or B.O. I clean well, I don't eat too much seasonings or anything and stay well hydrated. I am a little concerned why it's changed all of a sudden. Can anyone tell me if this is normal or if its a sign of anything? should I worry? Thank you so much for your replies. :)
I do eat garlic but not every day, only a few times week at the most. My body does not smell, nor sweat... i did notice that when i got my cycle, the milk stopped smelling. My daughter is not affected by this but well, it bothers me. hahaha I even questioned if maybe i was pregnant but I just don't think that's it. it's weird, i tried searching the internet and the only people that had this issue where mothers who just gave birth. :-/
My breastmilk would stink for 3 or 4 days after eating garlic . . . even just 1 clove in a whole family-sized pot of food. Baby didn't mind at all, but her breath smelled like my milk and I would get wafts of the smell rising off my chest. So I reduced my garlic intake to almost nothing for a few years. Just for my olfactory comfort.
maybe that's what it is, if that's the case that sucks i love my garlic. lol its weird too because i used to eat a lot of it before, i never had any issues with it and i eat a lot less of it now and its just started a month a go. I'll try to cut it out and see if that helps, thank you! :D
