Only tip I will give is a glass a water to drink whilst you are feeding as it can make you quite thirsty.

Anything you want really. But lots of proteins, healthy stuff of course if better, But not always what you want. Lol

Food and drink lots of water. Stay hydrated if you want to nurse.

Ask your pediatrician

I can tell you what not to eat.
No beans, no hot stuff , no asparagus cabbage Brussel sprots onion broccoli all these cause you gas & the baby will be coliky
