Hello,
Thanks for posting your query .
Since your baby is just two month old , the best food for your baby is exclusive breastfeeding . No top feeds or foods are advised for infants less than 6 months old .
Also fairness is mostly hereditary and to protect your baby's sensitive skin you should protect it from strong sunlight and use gentle skin products like daffy soap or johnsons baby soap and powder.
Do not use any harsh soaps or creams and use mild oil like olive oil or johnsons baby oil etc.
For your diet you should take 300- 500 ml milk daily , eat lots of fruits and vegetables XXXXXXX in fibre and consume pulses and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables daily or atleast thrice weekly.
Remember a healthy mother will make a healthy baby and a healthy baby will have glowing skin.
Make sure to have iron and calcium supplements daily.
Hope I have answered your query.
I'll be available for any follow up queries.
Regards

Hello,
Thanks for the follow up.
First of all I would like to appreciate your efforts as a health conscious and vigilant parent and do keep up the good work by continuing exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months of age .
nursing mothers should consume 2 to 2.5 cups of fruit a day. A cup of fruit equals a small XXXXXXX or one large banana, or peach Or2 chickoos.
Although it is important for nursing mothers to eat a lot of fresh fruits every day, certain types may irritate the baby. Fruits with high content of C concentrate like pineapple, lemon, oranges, and grapefruit can give the baby a rash.
If the baby has tolerated these ( as in mothers diet )then these can be given .
Try to eat a variety of fruits so that you have a balanced diet.Many dry fruits and nuts like almonds , raisins etc are good for increasing your iron content which in turn increases blood hemoglobin of babies.
Also , fruits like apples, oranges, peaches, and pears are high in fiber, which helps keep your digestive tract moving and help prevent constipation in nursing mothers.
Hope I have answered your query.
Kindly accept my answer if you have no further queries.
Wishing you and your baby good health.
Regards

hi i have a newborn she is 3 weeks old. she is breastfed and feeds often with many wet nappies per day. she poos on average only every 2nd day. a few days ago her weight confirmed she has put on almost 500gms in 1 week. Howover the last 24 hours she has been very unsettled, with a bloated tummy which has been making alot of loud gurgling noises all day, accompanied by 3 soiled nappies but only lightly soiled with very watery yellow poo. she keeps wanting to feed but it seems only for comfort as her tummy seems very full and hard. she sounds like she is constantly straining which makes her bring up small amounts of milk even as long as 40mins after a feed. what do you think is wrong with her and what should i do to settle her if she is already full?

hi, my baby always seems whingey and has now going of all his milk feeds what do you think it could be? he also fell backwards yesterday and worried about whiplash, he slept more than usual last night and woke up not taking his feeds, but he went of them before all this happened. He has also started weaning, maybe he has no need for milk?

I do have gential herpes, I did deliver my son naturally, they said they didn t see anything. I am breastfeeding. They gave me valacyclovirif I feel like I m having a breakout I would take it. When I feel like I m having a breakout I will get itchy. He would only get something if I had it on my nipple, I never did.should I stop breastfeeding or just get a pump and do both. It looks like a regular white hear, but why would it be there for a week.. Please help. Thank you
