I hope you are well. You can consume everything apart from processed, refined, and excessively fried foods. Add enough fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, dairy products, and whole grains to the diet. Drink enough water throughout the day as it shall keep you hydrated and in turn your baby as well. If you can express milk well and your baby is taking breastmilk happily, then please avoid giving formula milk as even formula milk is processed and there's nothing better than mother's milk :) He is only 22days old and he will gain weight and health gradually as he grows, please don't worry. Weight gain is a gradual process and your child would gain weight with breastmilk itself.
