5 Fruits UAE Mums Should Bypass

5 Fruits UAE Mums Should Bypass

Hello, splendid UAE mums!

Navigating the vibrant aisles of fruits in the UAE is like taking a journey through nature’s candy shop. But wait, for all the nursing mummies out there, there are a few fruits you might want to keep at arm’s length, at least for now. While we’re all eager to indulge, some fruits can be a bit of a no-no during this delicate phase. Let’s delve into which fruits to avoid, UAE mums.

1. Citrus Delights  

While oranges, grapefruits, and lemons are bursting with vitamin C, they can sometimes cause a ruckus in your baby’s delicate tummy. If your little one seems fussy or develops a rash, it might be worth swapping these citrus goodies for milder fruits like apples or pears.

2. Pineapple Pleasures  

Pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that, in some cases, can decrease breast milk production. While it’s not a universal issue, if you notice a dip in your milk supply, it could be an idea to avoid, UAE mums.

3. Papaya (Unripe)  

Ripe papayas are absolutely safe and loaded with nutrients, but green, unripe papayas? Not so much. They contain latex, which can lead to contractions in the uterus. So, when indulging in papaya, ensure it’s ripe and luscious.

4. Kiwi Conundrums  

Kiwi is a nutritious and delightful fruit. However, for those UAE mums with a history of allergies, it’s worth noting that kiwis can sometimes cause allergic reactions. If you’ve had a history or notice any unusual reactions in your baby, this is one more fruit to avoid.

5. Cherry Caution  

While cherries are delectable and packed with antioxidants, they can sometimes cause digestive discomfort for your little one when consumed in large quantities. Moderation is key, and if you spot any signs of distress, it might be another fruit to consider skipping.

Dear UAE mums, remember, every baby is unique. What affects one might not necessarily affect another. It’s all about observing, understanding, and making choices that best suit you and your little bundle of joy.

With so much love and endless cuddles coming your way, always keep the fun alive in this motherhood journey. And hey, once the breastfeeding phase is over, you can dive back into these fruits with gusto!
