My wife and I just had our first baby three weeks, a healthy little girl who will be breastfed for at least a year.
Typically she's a mellow baby as long as she's well fed. But lately she has developed more fussiness, particularly at night. It seems to be tied to bloating/gas she can't deal with in a laying down position. She has also developed some eczema /infant acne on the face and neck, which is not too uncommon from what I understand. Finally, we are a little anxious about entering the stage where infants typically show the signs of "colic" if they are going to have colic.
In light of all this, are there any papers or resources out there that give good solid info on the relationship between mama's diet and her baby's well being, particularly in terms of colic and gassy/fussiness and even the infant acne? I'm curious about things like, What are the relative importances of sufficient caloric intake vs energy needed as a new mother vs role of carbs in the new mother's diet and if it's a special case, role of potentially allergenic foods even if mother doesn't show strong reactions to these foods, etc.
Some first hand experiences are good to read about, but any scientific data would be particularly helpful. If I suggest to my wife to try going full paleo, or at least lacto-paleo at first (she drinks raw milk), it's best to have good reasons for suggesting so.
Thanks in advance!
