Eat whatever you want. If your baby has a sensitivity to something you eat, you will know.

I avoided cabbage, broccoli, and onions the first time around because within a few hours of eating those things my baby (and the entire house because of the baby) was miserable. After around 6-8 months I was able to eat those foods again. I never had a need to avoid any foods at any other times because of breastfeeding a baby.
