Chocolate and breastfeeding??

So my new baby boy is only 4 days old, but on day 2 when i got home from hospital i ate quite a few chocolate easter eggs. I had gestational diabetes, so i was desperately craving to eat some! Then last night, i noticed he was very unsettled, and seemed to have trouble bringing up wind after a feed, crying like he had a pain in the tummy, and was pooing constantly ( i changed his nappy about 6 times in 5 hours!) He has been very settled today, and was just wondering if eating too much chocolate could have affected him? I won't be doing that again!

Its possible. I know when I eat certain foods like broccoli or pepperoni my daughter seems to have stomach issues. It stinks but I want my daughter to be bf without any issues. I would wait a few days for it to pass and eat some more chocolate to see if its a problem or not.  That's how I found out

Oh yeah, actually I think chocolate is one of the foods that are on the list that I have that may irritate baby's belly that I got from my LC. Milk irritates my little girl if I drink too much of it.

My baby does ok with chocolate, but not with milk. So I have to limit my milk consumption or drink soy. I love chocolate soy milk anyways, so I drink it frequently.

I've never tried the soy, I was thinking about it, does it taste like milk or different? I'll have to try it!

It tastes a bit different. I drink the chocolate silk brand. I can't really describe the taste the consistency is a bit thicker too. I like it, but no one else in my family does. Lexi will drink it sometimes, but she prefers regular milk.
