a balanced diet is required during breast feeding . she needs to take plenty of liquids as milk contains 90% water. along with that calcium n vit d needs to be supplemented throughout. an iron tab for at least 2 months also helps.

Lactating mother can take all food she likes. There is no restriction of any sort from baby's point of view. Food should consist of high protein, leafy vegetables, fresh fruits. Happy Mother is best precursor of healthy baby.

Yes breastfeeding mother can drink coconut water and eat all homely foods .In general, there are only two foods breastfeeding women should avoid or consume in very small amounts: alcohol and fish. ... Plus, any foods that someone in the family has an allergy to should be avoided; the most common ones are eggs, peanuts, soy, wheat, corn, and milk.
