What are your thoughts on being grain-free, dairy-free, or both during pregnancy?

    I think it’s fine to omit both of those things during pregnancy– as they don’t offer any nutrients that can’t be found through other foods. Just make sure you’re eating a varied, well-balanced diet!

My husband and I have been toiling with starting to eat Paleo, but much of what I have read says that in the first month as your body adjusts it sheds toxins, and these toxins can end up in breastmilk. In your opinion, is it safe to START a paleo diet while breastfeeding? (My son is about to turn 1 and we plan on extended breastfeeding.)
Thanks!

    I personally wouldn’t start anything drastic while breastfeeding, but making gradual changes toward a healthier diet (like eliminating processed foods) and making sure to eat enough nutrient-rich whole foods should help you clean up your diet without too many side effects, as long as you take it slow.

Hi! I had a double mastectomy so I am not able to breast feed (no milk ducts)
Do you have a recommendation for a good clean baby formula? Im expecting in October and really dont trust my OB as im not sure she cares about GMO, organic, natural and such. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
