NEWBORN LIFESTYLE | GONZALES

A couple years ago, not long after my family moved to Colorado and I became the newest Castle Rock photographer, this family hired me to photograph their first newborn Claire (the big sister you see below).

Family vacation: RV camping 101

FOODS FOR NURSING MOMS TO AVOID
48 HOURS BEFORE NEWBORN SESSION:

Acidic food/drinks such as:

Cranberries     Pineapple     Grapefruit
Oranges     Lemons     Berries
Tomatos     Chocolate     Nuts
Pizza     Chili     Mexican food     Ketchup

Gassy vegetables such as:

Asparagus     Onions     Pickles
Cucumbers     Broccoli     Cauliflower
Brussels Sprouts     Cabbage

Restrict soda, coffee, tea, wine, and beer.

Sometimes dairy, depending on the baby.

I know this seems like a long list, but you only have your newborn's portraits taken once! It's not worth it to risk having a gassy or fussy baby who just can't settle. And in the event that your baby is still gassy, I always recommend keeping Gripe Water on hand. I know it was a lifesaver for me when my two were babies.
