Dietary Restrictions for Mothers Breastfeeding With Atopic Babies

When your baby experience allergic disease there will be many things should we notice, including mother-breastfeeding’s dietary. There are restrictions for mother to not freely consume any dietary product, because those food’s components can trigger atopic occurrence in your beloved one. Here are the list of foods for you to be avoided if you breastfeeding your baby with high risk allergic disease:

  1. The nursing mother should not freely consume CM and eggs, or any food that contains them. We and others recommend lowering CM consumption to 150–200 ml/day and eggs to two a week.

  2. If the nursing infant presents disorders attributable even to minimum amounts of these or other foods in breast milk, the mother should completely eliminate them from her diet.

  3. Foods that contain any CM and/or egg derivatives should be eliminated, as well as casein or sodium caseinate, etc.

  4. Meat consumption is permitted, avoiding beef if the nursing infant shows signs of allergy.

  5. Peanuts, shellfish and mollusks must be eliminated. Peanuts eaten by a lactating mother provoked an allergic reaction in her 2-week-old infant.

  6. The mother should add calcium orally to her diet on a daily basis.

In spite of restrict your daily dietary to prevent allergic occurrence in your baby, you have to also supply your beloved baby with antibody in order to enhance your baby’s immune protection, those are fundamental for newborn. Actually there is only one best resource to acquire immune enhancer, but it can be divided into two groups, those are:

First is from colostrums. Colostrums are rich in immunoglobulins (Igs), sIgA and EGF (epidermal growth factor), IgE-suppressing factors, which contributes to maturing intestinal defense and to intestinal closure, and EFA (essential fatty acids).

Second is from breast milk. Breast milk is rich in crucial cells, important protective anti-inflammatory and immunological defense factors, above all sIgA, as a result of which IgA in breast-fed babies will increase 12%/year until the age of 7 years. It also contains EFA, that only partially dependent on maternal diet, and nucleotides which build up the immune system. Breast milk performs an immune-modulating action on infantile immune mechanisms, by the transfer of cell-mediated immunity (CMI) and cytokines. Breast milk is the prototype of hypoallergenic food, since it provides the only proteins recognized as homologous by the infant and they are automatically nonallergenic. Moreover, breast milk ensures an excellent growth standard: based on Bayley’s indexes of mental and psychomotor development, breast-fed babies surpass bottle-fed peers in terms of intellectual [262], cognitive and behavioral development. It is the only food that allows such personal, intimate and emotionally important contact between mother and child, also promoting breast milk production, impaired by maternal admission to the maternity ward and CM administration there.
