Aspartame and BF — The Bump
Breastfeeding

Aspartame and BF

I have been consuming  a large amount of aspartame lately.  Recently, I have noticed that my one month old has developed a rash that is spreading to her entire head.  It looks awful.  I have also noticed that she has a lot of gas and really smelly diarrhea.  Can breast milk cause rashes?

Re: Aspartame and BF

  • Call your pedi about the rash. As far as it being related to bf'ing and aspartame, who knows.  Aspartame is an artificial sweetener so to me it wouldn't necessarily be the ideal thing to be consuming just as having a lot of sugar all the time probably wouldn't be although sugar is at least natural.  

    Your call in the end but if you're questioning it, maybe take a break and see if it makes any difference.
