Drinks containing alcohol, should be deleted.Alcohol passes into breast milk and may cause alcohol poisoning in a child (if alcohol is consumed in large quantities).If small, then such a "menu" of lactating women lead to inhibition of a child's development of physical and mental abilities.
Coffee and tea you can drink, but not strong.Otherwise, it could adversely affect the child's nervous system.And by the way, is so popular right now, even green tea contains more caffeine than coffee rather weak.Therefore, the inclusion of it in your diet should be careful nursing mothers.The suggested Often grandmothers tea with milk does not lead to increased lactation, but not harmful.
