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).

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.

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.
