Yes! I ate prata and curry during my confinement. There is no scientific research that says we cannot eat these foods during confinement. However, if you are breastfeeding, eating spicy foods may result in breastmilk with stronger taste. My baby is totally fine with it. You may observe the reaction of your baby to see whether he develops any allergic reaction. Moreover, it is better to eat healthier foods during confinement since we are recovering from delivery. You can eat these "not so healthy" food once in awhile.Read more
Agree with Evelyn! As long as you are eating these in moderation, there is no rule saying that you will have to avoid prata or curry. Watch your baby's reaction and opt for milder version of the curry or in smaller amount if your baby did seemed to be affected by it.Read more
