It is generally considered safe for women with no history of food allergies to eat common allergens such as nuts while they're breastfeeding.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that breastfeeding mothers whose children have a high risk of developing an allergy (usually those who have immediate family with a severe food allergy) consider eliminating foods such as dairy, nuts, eggs, and fish from their diet. However, so far there is no clear evidence that a breastfeeding mother's diet will have any effect on whether her baby develops allergies. In fact, these days a lot of allergists are worried that by eliminating allergens from kids' environment, we're actually increasing their risk of developing allergies.

Until we have a clear answer on this, I recommend that women who have a strong family history of severe allergy try to avoid common allergens during breastfeeding. If you this doesn't describe you, feel free to include them in your diet.

A few children do have a severe milk protein allergy. If their mother ingests milk products while breastfeeding, these babies can show signs of allergy such as bloody stools and irritability, but this isn't very common. Talk with your pediatrician if you think your baby is having an allergic reaction to the dairy you're eating. If it's severe, you may need to avoid eating dairy for as long as you're breastfeeding.
